Profile Information

Dynamic and vibrant, the University of Canberra (UC) is embedded deep in the economic, social and cultural life of Canberra – Australia’s education, as well as national, capital. Canberra is a wonderful place to live, study and work – a young, safe, connected, multicultural city which boasts a beautiful natural environment, excellent entertainment and sports venues, a buzzing food scene and a glittering galaxy of cultural institutions. UC is a university for the professions, and is dedicated to providing immersive, top-quality student experiences.
It is immensely proud of its world-ready graduates – in fact, UC is No. 1 in the ACT for graduate employment (Good Universities Guide 2020). This is due to UC’s two-pronged focus, encompassing progressive teaching and learning, as well as strong ties to industry. The latter means that students enjoy real-world experience and formative placements with work-integrated learning as part of their study.


Ranked in the top ten of Australia’s best universities (The Times Higher Education World Rankings 2020), UC is also in the top 200 worldwide (Times Higher Education World Rankings 2020). These are remarkable numbers for a university only 30 years young, having begun its life as the Canberra College of Advanced Education in 1967. It commenced as the University of Canberra in 1990. UC’s reputation for world-class research, and teaching and learning, belies its youth. As a young and comparatively small university, its agility and responsiveness enables it to stay ahead of the higher education pack in key areas of focus.


UC’s flexibility means that a myriad pathways are available for life-long learners, whether you are a school-leaver looking to turn your passion into a career, are looking for an industry-accredited course to advance your career path, or simply want to feed a love for learning.
