Sport at the University

Vision for Sport

The University of Canberra aims to become regarded as Australia's leading university for sport education and research and be internationally renowned for its collaborations, innovation and technology which positively impact on sport performance and active living. Within close proximity lie federal and state government departments, the Australian Sport Commission and the Australian Institute of Sport who provide the Australian sporting landscape with purpose and direction. Canberra and the region boasts numerous professional and amateur sporting clubs and a city designed with sport in mind. The University of Canberra Brumbies super 15 rugby club is based on campus in a purpose-built Sport Commons which includes state-of-the art training, support and administration facilities as well as sport-related teaching and research laboratories and ACTSport offices.

We seek to develop an excellent and inclusive learning environment for our students, staff and external partners, informed by research and consultancy which impacts sport at state, national and international level.

Sport is a prominent feature of the University of Canberra and is a major part of the university's global development. Our sportsmen and sportswomen compete with distinction at all levels of sport including the Olympic and Paralympic Games and in professional sport. We are investing significantly in our people and facilities to gain a prominent position in the Australian sporting landscape. The University of Canberra is developing an international sporting reputation and has well-developed international collaborations, particularly in Asia with Shanghai University of Sport, Beijing University of Sport and IPE - Thailand University of Sport.
