About Queensland University of Technology
Our campuses offer high quality learning, teaching and research spaces to better meet the needs of students, academics and researchers. We are a highly successful Australian university with an applied emphasis in courses and research.
While we're based in Brisbane, Queensland, we have a global outlook. With some 45,000 students, including 6,000 from overseas, and an annual budget of more than $800 million, we're positioned to grow and develop as one of Australia's leading universities.
Each year more than 6,000 bachelor-degree students graduate from QUT. We continue to outperform Queensland and Australian average rates for graduate employment. We ranked 13th globally for employability rate in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings in 2016.
Our reputation means your degree will be well recognised wherever you choose to pursue your career. In 2016, QUT was the highest ranked Queensland university in the Times Higher Education world's top universities under 50 years. We also ranked in the top 2 per cent of universities worldwide (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016).
Our performance is exceptional in the Australian Awards for University Teaching and Fellowship program, which recognises efforts to advance learning and teaching in higher education. We have received 100 Australian Awards for University Teaching to date, so you know you'll be taught by award-winning teaching staff.
We know what employers want in our graduates, because we ask them. Our courses are designed and reviewed in consultation with professionals to match changing industry needs. Our connections also mean many of our courses include work experience or opportunities to work on real projects, so that you graduate with the skills you'll need in your career.
In recent years, more than $500 million has been spent to enhance lecture theatres, studios, laboratories and communal work spaces across our campuses to offer you the best environment for study and building your practical skills.
With our world-class courses and learning facilities, and programs for overseas exchange and engagement, you will be prepared to work in Australia and internationally.
Your time at university will be life changing. University is more than a place to learn, it's a whole new world of opportunity. We provide support, social activities and development opportunities to help you discover your place in the world and make the most of your time at university.
