The University of Queensland’s St Lucia, Herston, Ipswich and Gatton campuses are a great place to study.
UQ St Lucia – the University’s largest campus – comprises gracious sandstone buildings, parklands and lakes that surround world-class teaching and research facilities.
UQ Herston is UQ’s major clinical health teaching and research location, located alongside some of Brisbane’s major teaching and research hospitals.
UQ Ipswich offers students a unique learning environment by combining a dynamic new and smaller campus with the quality of a world-class institution.
UQ Gatton delivers excellence in agriculture and natural resource sciences.
All campuses are located in, or near, Brisbane – an enviable place to study and live. With a multicultural population of almost two million, Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is large enough to offer all the advantages of a modern city but small enough to retain the country charm for which it is renowned.
UQ students can engage with the national and international community through worldwide internship opportunities in diverse program areas, field trips with destinations ranging from tropical Heron Island in North Queensland to Hong Kong, student exchanges, and study abroad opportunities. Since 2006 over 900 UQ students have spent a semester abroad with one of our partner institutions.
