About Central Queensland University

CQUniversity is a young university but in almost 25 years has been able to achieve outstanding things and is now emerging as one of Australia’s truly great universities. As one of Australia’s largest regional universities, CQUniversity has the most extensive geographical footprint of any  university in the country with more than 20 physical delivery sites across mainland Australia.

CQUniversity is also well regarded in Australia as the nation’s most inclusive and engaged university, with our award-winning academic and research staff making a real impact on the communities and industries we serve. Internationally, CQUniversity’s commitment to diversity, inclusivity  and collaboration has led to it being recognised among the world’s leading universities by both the prestigious Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the QS World University rankings system.

CQUniversity Australia operates from six locations in Central Queensland with campuses in Rockhampton, Gladstone, Mackay, and Bundaberg and learning sites at Emerald and Noosa - covering an area three- to four- times the size of Victoria. All campuses are equipped to ensure that students receive the very best academic, cultural and personal support available. And then there are the lifestyle benefits that come from being away from the hustle and bustle of the city. No manic rush hour. Stunning, uncrowded beaches. The majesty of the Great Barrier Reef. Hectares of parklands and public gardens and, of course, the beauty of the Australian outback at your doorstep. International students can select from Australia's most popular urban destinations- Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast - as well as what has become an increasingly popular choice, Rockhampton.
