QUT is a prominent citizen of Brisbane and of the broader Queensland and Australian knowledge ecosystems. We embrace our role in helping Queensland play to its strengths and realise its latent potential. We are committed to serving our wider community - by building aspiration and pathways to success in higher education for all whose circumstances have made it difficult for them to share in the benefits of university education.
Brisbane is a progressive and globally connected city. Australia's third largest capital, it is a vibrant entrepreneurial hub serviced by a high-quality network of both public and private, primary and secondary schools.
The city boasts a thriving music and café culture, a calendar of internationally acclaimed arts, cultural and sporting events, fine dining as well as a contemporary art and gallery scene. The friendly people of Brisbane enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in a subtropical climate, within reach of beautiful national parks, hundreds of kilometres of golden beaches and tropical rainforests. One hour south of Brisbane sits the Gold Coast and its famous beaches, amusement parks, and shopping, while the beautiful, quiet beaches of the Sunshine Coast lay only an hour and a half north of the city. The Great Barrier Reef is a short flight away.
Our Gardens Point campus is located at the gateway to Brisbane's CBD, alongside two city bridges that span the Brisbane River and the lush City Botanic Gardens, while the Kelvin Grove campus is situated just ten minutes away in a thriving, inner- city urban village, which integrates our campus with the community.
