University of Canberra

The University of Canberra is a young, vibrant and energetic university with a clear public purpose serving the community of Canberra and the surrounding regions – city to coast, alpine to tablelands. Our home in Canberra is a place where ideas are born, creativity is explored and opportunity is created.

Whether it’s solving environmental challenges, meeting the healthcare needs of our community or equipping the leaders of the future, our university is an embodiment of our city. Though our home is in Canberra, our global connections are deep and far-reaching through our research, business connections, alumni networks and partnerships.

With a real-world, practical approach to education and deeply embedded work-based learning, our graduates enjoy an 88 per cent employment rate and higher starting salaries than the Australian university average (ComparED, 2022). Many of our 94,000 alumni hold influential positions in public and private sectors in 120 countries.

Our ambition, talent and drive have seen us rocket up the international rankings, placing us in the top 1 per cent of universities worldwide and the top 10 universities in Australia (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022).

We are a leading sports institution with strong ties to elite sporting teams. We also have world-class health facilities, including our integrated health precinct, which provides access to cutting-edge learning and research environments.
