We’re a young, fresh university driven by an unwavering belief that community and culture are just as important as a world-class education, given by world-class educators. We may not be the biggest university, but we’re growing every day and doing big things, such as ground-breaking research, championing sustainability and producing award-winning alumni.
Our first campus on the Sunshine Coast opened its doors in 1996. Today, we span five campuses across Southeast Queensland, with a network of teaching locations at the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay, the Fraser Coast, Caboolture and Gympie.
We are regionally based, but globally relevant
Being a young university means you’re never going to be bombarded by stale traditions or hear limiting phrases like, ‘That’s the way we’ve always done it’. We prefer innovative thinking that moves everyone forward.
Our students have ranked UniSC as one of the best universities in Australia for teaching quality – a title we’ve held since 2006.
We’re proud of the study options we offer across more than 120 programs within 26 speciality areas, including environmental sciences, nursing, medical and mental health sciences, biological sciences, engineering, technology, psychology, agriculture, human studies and communication.
A key focus at UniSC is making sure you are ready to step into a successful career. We’ve embedded practical training in all our programs so you can feel confident and ready for the workplace.
Sustainability is something we care about deeply at UniSC. We’re among the world’s best in higher education for our work in conserving underwater life and protecting land life. We’re incredibly proud of our environmental focus, especially so considering our unique geographical location. Queensland houses the only stretch of three continuous UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, and all are UniSC campus locations. This means UniSC is the world’s only university operating within three interconnecting biosphere reserves, including the world heritage listed K’gari (Fraser Island).
Together with our people, community and partners, we’re building a safe, sustainable, supportive, and fun learning environment, where lifelong friends are made and opportunities are earned.
Join us and build your future, the way you want it.
