UQ ranks among the world’s top universities, and with a strong focus on teaching excellence, has won more national teaching awards than any other Australian university.
UQ’s 307,000 graduates are an engaged network of global alumni spanning more than 170 countries, and include approximately 16,300 PhDs. More than 56,000 current students, including more than 20,000 postgraduate students and approximately 21,000 international students from 137 countries, currently study across UQ’s three campuses in South East Queensland.
UQ’s six faculties, eight globally recognised research institutes and more than 100 research centres attract an interdisciplinary community of 1,500 scientists, social scientists and engineers who champion research excellence and continue UQ’s tradition of research leadership. This is reflected in UQ being the number one recipient of Australian Research Council fellowships and awards (452 awards worth $339 million across all scheme years).
UQ is also one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21; a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities; a member of Universities Australia; and one of only three Australian charter members of the global edX consortium for massive open online courses (MOOCs).
