University of the Sunshine Coast

The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) is a public university based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. USC is a young university, not limited by tradition or old ways of thinking. It strives to pass this mindset on to their students and staff. It provides the hands-on learning and practical skills needed by the people of its diverse regions from Moreton Bay to the Fraser Coast: the nurses, teachers, mental health and medical professionals, environmentalists, scientists, engineers, lawyers, problem solvers, creators and creative thinkers, high-performance athletes, entrepreneurs and the leaders of tomorrow who improve the lives of people at home and abroad.

USC is home to some of the most advanced facilities in Australia, including simulated nursing and paramedic labs, advanced engineering technologies, and state-of-the-art creative industries’ facilities. In addition to this, USC has an active program of sustainability initiatives that addresses both large-scale issues such as energy, waste, recycling and the campus environment, and targeted activities such as the development and use of green cleaning practices.

The university has a flagship campus at Sippy Downs on the Sunshine Coast, with more campuses at Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast, Gympie, Caboolture, and South Bank in Brisbane. USC also has study hubs in Noosa and North Lakes.
