The University of Canberra is Australia’s Capital University. It offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in coursework and research. Located in Australia’s capital city, it has a student population of 12,000 and international students from 81 countries. The University specializes in what it calls Professional Preparation for Professional Careers. This combines work-integrated learning with a high standard of course work and theory, and means that students in most courses find themselves working hands-on in their chosen field before graduation. This preparation is one reason for the popularity of UC graduates with employers, and their excellent starting salaries. The University of Canberra is a single campus set on 120 hectares of native bushland, with tall trees, resident kangaroos and abundant bird life. It is within walking distance of a major shopping centre with cinema complex, restaurants and all amenities. It’s also just ten minutes from Canberra’s city centre. UC is two hours by car from the beautiful white surf beaches of Australia’s south coast, and the same distance from the Snowy Mountains for winter skiing or summer hiking. It is a great central location from which to explore one of the world’s great tourist destinations.

When you are not in class you can laze on the lawn, use the computer labs open 24/7, or study in the library. For the more active souls, you can use the gym, walk by the lake or join one of the many sports teams. ‘The Hub’ is the commercial centre of UC where you can drink, eat, have your hair cut, do your banking, mail things home, buy your books, and plan your travels around Australia.Combine our applied learning approach, academic excellence, and vibrant campus life, and its clear why our university is a great choice for you!
