QUT is an ambitious institution, driven to provide transformative education and research relevant to our communities.

QUT seeks to equip our nearly 50,000 students with the skills needed in an increasingly disrupted world. Our courses are in high demand, we offer a diverse range of scholarships, and our graduates are valued for their knowledge, skills and abilities. Our academic staff are consistently recognised in national teaching awards and for their outstanding and relevant research outcomes.

QUT has experienced dramatic growth in research and teaching over the past 15 years, investing heavily in collaborative learning and interdisciplinary research environments. Our faculties, institutes and research centres, outstanding researchers and students partner with industry and government on large-scale and high-impact interdisciplinary research projects. Every day, QUT research drives the practice, policy, scientific and technological growth that makes our world more sustainable, secure and resilient.

Staff and students work and study in technology-rich, world-class precincts housed in two of Australia's most engaging campuses, both located in Brisbane's inner city. We take pride in our campuses as manifested in a refreshed Estate Master Plan, with community engagement at its heart. The integrated village setting of our Kelvin Grove campus, featuring the world-leading interactive learning Education and Creative Industries Precincts, is unique in Australia, and the continuity of our Gardens Points campus with the CBD, State Parliament, Botanic Gardens and Brisbane River is also well renowned.
