The University of Queensland (UQ) has one of the most comprehensive high-quality range of undergraduate degrees in Australia. We provide choices to give you flexibility to meet your learning goals.  

Many of our degrees offer practical experiences such as field trips and industry placements to boost your skills and enhance employability.  We engage with industry to provide mentorship opportunities and inform curriculum development. UQ also allows undergraduate students to undertake two bachelor degrees at the same time (dual degree programs), but in a shorter period of time than if they were completed separately. 

The UQ student experience provides a foundation for success far beyond graduation. We offer a balance of support, structure and flexibility while preparing you to compete in today’s rapidly evolving workplace. The UQ Employability Award program gives you the chance to build skills that future employers value, such as leadership, teamwork, communication, problem solving and cultural awareness.

St Lucia Campus

Just seven kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, UQ St Lucia is renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses.

Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, the 114-hectare site provides a perfect study, research and living environment. You will enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.

The gracious sandstone architecture, with its hub of cloistered buildings enclosing the National Trust-registered Great Court – along with spacious parklands and lakes – encompass world-class teaching and research facilities, including Queensland’s largest research library, fully equipped laboratories and modern lecture theatres.

 

Gatton Campus

UQ Gatton combines its Queensland Agricultural College heritage with modern research and teaching facilities in agriculture, agribusiness and veterinary science.

Just over an hour’s drive west of Brisbane and five kilometres from the local township, the 1068-hectare Gatton campus offers a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and world-class facilities including the Queensland Animal Science Precinct, the UQ Veterinary Medical Centre, Gatton Research Dairy, nursery and glasshouse facilities, the southern hemisphere’s largest PV solar array research facility, and a pesticide wind tunnel facility.

The campus also operates several commercial plant and animal production units in rural technologies to support teaching, research and hands-on training.

 

Herston Campus

Just three kilometres from the Brisbane city centre, Herston is UQ’s core campus for clinical health teaching and research.

Sharing premises with the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, UQ Herston houses a vibrant clinical and research community who deliver innovative and contemporary research and education programs in a clinical academic environment.

Major research institutes on-campus include the UQ Centre for Clinical Research, along with other key facilities such as the Oral Health Centre and the purpose-built Herston Imaging Research Facility.

UQ’s diverse off-campus facilities include:

• marine research stations at North Stradbroke and Heron Islands

The UQ student experience provides a foundation for success far beyond graduation.  We offer a balance of support, structure and flexibility while preparing our students to compete in today’s rapidly evolving workplace. 

Our students have access to the latest and most advanced disciplinary knowledge as a result of UQ research informing our programs. With international learning opportunities, partnerships that provide support and industry insight, and inspirational teaching staff, you are encouraged to ask the questions that create change.

UQ's beautiful campus environment matches the best higher education settings in the world, including extensive recreation and sporting facilities and world-class buildings. UQ Sport offers hundreds of sports and activities to help you keep active at Queensland’s largest multi-sport complex.

UQ also has an array of cultural facilities on offer including multiple libraries, museums, a theatre, and a drama studio.

UQ’s 280,000 graduates are an engaged network of global alumni spanning more than 170 countries, and include more than 15,400 PhDs. You will benefit from an extensive graduate network, strong industry partnerships and many notable alumni.

UQ's graduate employability statistics are impressive. According to the latest Graduate Careers Australia’s Australian Graduate Survey (2020), 72.8 per cent of UQ Australian bachelor's degree graduates available for full-time work had secured full-time employment within four months of completing courses, comparing favourably to the national average of 72.6 per cent.
