Canberra Students Information Manual

Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor

The University of Canberra is committed to providing tertiary education directly to our local communities and in partnership with other institutions to students around Australia and internationally.

Our educational partnerships are designed to bring the best of vocational and higher education study together to provide you with access to select courses in targeted locations.

By undertaking your University of Canberra degree, through one of our partner institutions, you will be able to access the best that both have to offer. You'll find the experienced staff inspiring and encouraging with strong ties to business and industry.

The University of Canberra is working hard to become one of the world's best universities. It's a bold vision, but an achievable one, particularly when we're building on a strong foundation of applied research, training some of the nation's most sought-after professionals and working closely with industry.

For the second consecutive year we have been ranked in the top 5% of universities in the world and we're here to help you develop the strengths and skills you need to make substantial academic, professional and personal breakthroughs.

University of Canberra graduates are among the most sought after and highly paid in the country. The hands-on work experience we offer lets you put theory into practice and is an important reason why we are consistently ranked among Australia's top universities for 'Getting a Job' and 'Starting Salary' in the Good Universities Guide.

As a young, creative and energetic university we'll continue to progress and grow to meet the changing needs of our students.

We've got big plans, as you can see. Now you get to be a part of them!
