University of Canberra

Dynamic and vibrant, the University of Canberra (UC) is embedded deep in the soul of Canberra, the Australian capital. Canberra is a place where ideas are born, creativity is explored and opportunity is created. Its home in Canberra and connection with its neighbouring communities shapes its purpose as a university. 

Whether it’s fostering innovation, meeting health-care needs, solving environmental challenges or equipping its future leaders, this University is an embodiment of its distinctive city. Canberra is a wonderful place to live, study and work, a safe, connected, multicultural city which boasts great scenery, excellent entertainment and sports venues, a buzzing food scene and a glittering galaxy of cultural institutions. UC is a university for the professions, dedicated to providing immersive student experiences focussed on employability outcomes. 

In fact, they’re number one in the ACT for graduate employment and salaries (Good Universities Guide 2020), and we’re swiftly developing a global reputation, achieving a place in the world’s top 20 young universities (THE YUR 2020), Australia’s top 10 universities and amongst the top 1% of universities worldwide (THE 2020). 

These are remarkable achievements for a university only celebrating our 30th anniversary this year. Their location in Australia’s capital city has shaped the University as progressive and dynamic, dedicated to public service and building a sustainable and prosperous future. As a hub of learning, practical courses, innovative research and new opportunities, it will always be the University in, of and for Canberra.
