Have you ever wished to study science at one of Australia’s most beautiful university campuses and a world top-ranked 100 university?

The University of Queensland’s main campus, St Lucia, is just seven kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, and 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 modern campus with the tradition of an established university.

St Lucia’s beautiful sandstone architecture, parklands and lakes encompass world-class teaching and research facilities. These include Queensland’s largest research library and fully equipped laboratories and lecture theatres.

The campus has landscaped grounds, three lakes, an aquatic centre, tennis courts, eight athletics ovals with a 600-seat grandstand, and facilities for elite rowing.

The campus fans out from a 1930s, heritage-listed sandstone Cloister enclosing the heritage-listed Great Court.

See for yourself…

The University of Queensland is ranked #1 in Australia in life sciences* and #51 in the world university rankings**. It is one of the most popular destination choices for international students due to its location, lifestyle and student experience.

Bachelor of Science/Education alumnus, Xinyu Yan, said she chose The University of Queensland because of its prestige and academic status.

“The importance of education cannot be simply expressed in a few words. With the double degree in UQ, you are armed with professional skills and are thus confident in your working place.”

“It is a beautiful campus and from my inspection on UQ Open Day, it has wonderful student services and many different clubs to suit your own interests. It encompasses a variety of religions and cultures.”
