Brisbane Travel Guide

Education

Several universities call Brisbane home and there are opportunities for international students to enrol in their degree programs. Many of them have exchange agreements with several foreign universities.

The University of Queensland (UQ) is the oldest university in Queensland and arguably the most prestigious, being a member of the Group of Eight, a coalition of leading Australian universities, intensive in research and comprehensive in general and professional education. UQ has it's main campus in the Brisbane suburb of St. Lucia, with other smaller campuses at Ipswich, Gatton and Herston and satellite facilities scattered around Queensland.
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is another major university located in Brisbane, with a strong focus on both research and practical teaching, forming as an amalgamation of a number of various technical colleges. It also ranks very highly amongst Australian universities. The main campus is located at Gardens Point, right in the heart of Brisbane CBD, with other campuses at Kelvin Grove, Carseldine and Caboolture.
Griffith University (simply referred to as Griffith by the locals) is the other major university in Brisbane, with a focus on more creative degrees, but it does offer many of the same degrees you can undertake at other universities. The university has a number of campuses in Brisbane suburbs including South Bank, Mount Gravatt and Nathan, with another two campuses in Logan City and the Gold Coast.
