QUT is a major Australian university with a global outlook and a 'real world' focus. We are one of the nation’s fastest growing research universities and our courses are in high demand. Our graduates include eight Rhodes Scholars, five of these awarded in the past six years.
Young in outlook and bold in approach, we are an ambitious and collaborative institution that seeks to equip our students and graduates with the skills they will need in an increasingly disrupted and challenged world.
Combining technology, creativity and knowledge, we are transforming the student experience we offer our 50,000 students. We place a premium on the international and national accreditation of our various professional degrees and our graduate employment rate remains above the national average for Australian universities. Our students enjoy the flexibility to choose a combination of study areas and participate in exchange programs with overseas universities.
QUT offers academic programs from bachelor degree to PhD in business, creative industries, education, health, science and engineering, and law. Some 25 per cent of enrolments are at postgraduate level, and 8000 of our students come from overseas. Our annual budget is AU$930 million.
QUT Business School is in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide to hold triple accreditation and one of only three providers nationwide to earn Financial Times global rankings in 2015 for its executive education programs. Our staff are consistently recognised in national teaching awards, with QUT receiving two prestigious program awards and five citations in the 2015 Australian Awards for University Teaching.
High impact research and innovation
QUT aspires to deliver high impact, transdisciplinary research, leveraging our deep technological strengths, to secure significant public commercial and practical benefits for the community and for our partners.
In 2014, QUT attracted over $135M in research funding (including research performance block grant awarded by the Australian Government).
QUT is focused on high quality research outputs as supported by the Australian Government’s Excellence in Research for Australia assessment process, where 100 per cent of our identified fields of research were assessed as world-class and above. In addition, QUT is ranked 9th in the country for research block grant funding – a direct result of the university’s performance in income attraction, research outputs, and higher degree research supervision and completions.
Technology-rich, world-class precincts
Based in subtropical Brisbane, QUT has three lively, beautiful campuses: at Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove in the inner city, and at Caboolture north of the city. Staff and students work and study in technology-rich, world-class precincts.
We invest heavily in collaborative learning and interdisciplinary research environments and provide one of the best research training settings in Australia, emphasising supervision excellence, a high standard of pastoral support and facilities, and enhanced engagement of PhD students in teaching activities and career preparation.
Our internationally award-winning Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point is home to The Cube, acknowledged as one of the world’s largest digital interactive learning and display spaces.
QUT established the world's first Creative Industries Faculty at Kelvin Grove, where a thriving urban village integrates our campus with the community. In 2016, our Creative Industries Precinct entered a new phase with the completion of sophisticated digital facilities including outstanding student studio spaces for visual and performance arts. A new Education Precinct will be launched at Kelvin Grove in 2017.
The quality of our research capability in key areas and its supporting infrastructure has resulted in the attraction of significant long-term centre government funding.
