University of Canberra
The University of Canberra is proudly the university of the nation’s capital. However, it is not constrained by geography and offers an increasingly international experience.
Research takes a global perspective, with the University’s researchers delivering breakthroughs that help solve real-world problems. In addition to research within and between faculties, there are three ‘university research centres’: the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis, the Institute for Applied Ecology and the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise. Other areas of research expertise at the university encompass education, communication, health and forensic science.
The University places a strong emphasis on ‘work-integrated learning’, which gives students valuable experience in the workplace before they graduate. This helps give them the skills to hit the ground running and start making a real contribution early in their career. This is why the University’s graduates are among the most sought after in the country and why the University is consistently awarded a maximum five star rating for ‘getting a job’ in the Good Universities Guide.
The University has achieved global recognition, with its place in the latest QS World University Rankings putting the University of Canberra in the top five per cent of universities in the world.
