University of Canberra

The University of Canberra is and always has been committed to providing a transformative educational experience accessible to everyone, whatever their stage of life and background. This is a central element of our current strategic plan and an aspiration we are absolutely committed to.

Our much-valued predecessor, the Canberra College of Advanced Education (CCAE) transformed many lives with its focus on professional education, at a time when the political and economic climate gave many people opportunity—especially those not traditionally expected to enter tertiary education. This is a commitment that we continue today, within the globalised higher education sector.

UC still has a clear professional focus offering a range of applied degrees and a strong commitment to work integrated learning. Our education and research aims to help build just, prosperous and sustainable communities to redress disadvantage. We are also committed to building the national Reconciliation agenda, through tangible actions under our Reconciliation Action Plan.
