Based in Brisbane, QUT is a highly successful Australian university with an excellent graduate employment rate, global connections and a world-class record in applied research.
QUT's real-world approach means that teaching goes beyond the textbook - work placement opportunities, group projects and learning from lecturers who are still active in their industry means students will be better prepared for the working world.
With a reputation for high quality courses, QUT has the first business school in Australia to attain the 'Triple Crown' of international accreditation from the UK-based Association of MBAs (AMBA); US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) and European Foundation for Management Development (EQUIS). Less than one per cent of all business schools worldwide have achieved accreditation with all three prestigious bodies.
All QUT faculties are encouraged to build international components into their teaching programmes and to participate in international research initiatives and projects. The University has established links with more than 100 institutions worldwide to facilitate academic collaboration, student exchanges and study abroad.
QUT also has long-standing research links with a number of leading international public and private sector organisations including SAP, Boeing, Microsoft, Shell, and the World Health Organisation. Strength in applied mathematics and statistical modelling underpins many areas of QUT's research, and is evident through an A$230 million infrastructure investment in a Science and Technology Precinct and Community Hub at the Gardens Point campus in the heart of Brisbane City. Due for completion in 2012, this first class facility will feature stimulating learning, research and recreational spaces and enable on-site collaboration with cooperative research centres (CRCs), reflecting QUT´s commitment to fostering research that responds to globally relevant challenges.
Further testimony to QUT's reputation is its corporate education partnerships with the Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering chosen by industry globally to develop unique, customised learning centres, collaborating with leading organisations such as Royal Dutch Shell, Ausenco and Brisbane Airport Corporation.
QUT has Brisbane's only two full service inner-city campuses, reinforcing their links with business and industry while creating a dynamic environment for students. With a reputation for high-quality education, Brisbane is the ideal place to live and learn.
QUT offers an extensive range of English language and pathway programmes, undergraduate, postgraduate and research courses. CRICOS No. 00213J.
