Set along the Brisbane River, University of Queensland (UQ) is a classic university campus featuring distinctive sandstone buildings framed by flowering jacaranda trees. On campus, you will find cafes, manicured lawns, art galleries, museums and playing fields - all of this is located in the upscale neighborhood of St. Lucia, less than five miles from central Brisbane.
One of the oldest universities in Australia, UQ is ranked in the top 100 Universities worldwide. With over 35,000 students, it's not surprising that UQ has more than 60 academic departments and 4,000 courses on offer every year. You can study anything from architecture to marine biology to psychology. Government and industry funded Cooperative Research Centres in fields such as mining, infectious diseases, tropical plant protection, and Aboriginal health illustrate the comprehensive nature of research and teaching that goes on at the University of Queensland. Whether you are studying history or physics, a student body hailing from all regions of Australia and the world means you'll be introduced to an international perspective.
Outside the classroom, you'll find some of the best sporting facilities of any Australian university. Recreational facilities, including a pool, ball fields, and open spaces are scattered throughout the campus. The Student Union organizes a wide range of clubs and societies that offer opportunities to integrate with other students. You'll also find a diverse selection of restaurants and cafes as well as shops around campus to suit your needs. Across the lawns, you'll also find accommodation at the residential colleges, although many students choose to live in Arcadia managed apartments within a short bus ride of campus.
