Overview

The University of Canberra is the university of the capital city. Our role is to serve Canberra, its surrounding communities and its partners through education and research. In doing so, we reflect the different dimensions of Canberra: the nations capital and the international implications of that status; the seat of government and public administration; the home of national cultural, scientific and sporting institutions; a symbol of Australian identity; a designed and landscaped city; a local community committed to a sustainable, educated, healthy, prosperous life. We share many features of other high quality universities, but the way we reflect the dimensions of a unique city differentiates us from all other Australian universities.

Mission Statement

The University of Canberra focuses on professionally preparing students for their professional careers. We combine state of the art knowledge with research, work integrated learning and close collaboration with the professions we serve. Many of our students gain valuable hands-on experience in their chosen fields before they graduate. This provides a valuable competitive edge that enhances their career prospects in the real worlds of Health, Education, Business, Government, Management, Law, Applied Science, Information Sciences, Engineering, Arts, Design and Communication. Our coursework and research degrees are accepted and respected worldwide. Our graduates are among Australia`s most employable. The University is consistently awarded the maximum five stars for `getting a job` and `positive graduate outcomes` by the Good Universities Guide. We offer flexible pathway programs and start dates. Our intensive Winter Term allows students to fast-track their degree by taking on more units of study or spread their study load across three teaching periods. As Australia`s Capital University, we attract students from every state in Australia and over 100 other countries. They enjoy the transformational experience that only a collegial relationship between students and academics can provide, and contribute to our friendly multicultural community. They open their minds, broaden their horizons, make new friends and develop international professional networks in their respective fields.
