Canberra is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets, and there’s plenty to love about Australia’s capital.
It’s regularly crowned one of Australia’s most liveable cities, its residents have some of the highest salaries in the country, and it’s a green oasis. Plus, Canberra is hugely progressive both socially and environmentally.
The University of Canberra (UC) is home to over 200 courses in 12 areas of study, from undergraduate to postgraduate level, meaning you’ll find the perfect course, no matter what career you dream of pursuing. UC is Australia’s fastest-rising university, ranked in the top 10 universities in Australia and the top one per cent of universities internationally, so you’re guaranteed a world-class education.
With modern facilities, including sporting facilities, laboratories and research facilities, and student collaboration and learning spaces, UC is a welcoming and exciting place to study.
Student welfare is at the heart of our vision at UC. For this reason, we offer a range of student support services, especially for those living away from family, including clubs and student societies.
Plus, if you plan on working in Australia after graduating, Canberra has recently been designated a regional area. This means that international students can enjoy an extra year of work post-study on some visas.
Canberra is surrounded by lush, green nature and is easy to cycle around. Grab a bike through one of Canberra’s bike-sharing providers and explore. If you’d rather travel on foot, you can enjoy a hike or stroll through the nearby bushland.
For those who prefer to remain in the city, there is plenty to do. We suggest a visit to the National Gallery of Australia, eating your way along Lonsdale Street in Braddon or visiting Questacon, Australia’s interactive and fun-packed science museum.
When you need a quiet moment, retreat to your local library or one of UC’s study spaces to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
