The University of Canberra (UC) is a modern university which emphasizes professional development, and not just academic learning, in its degree programs. The suburban university complements Canberra's other uni, the research-orientated Australian National University (ANU).

16,216 students

24% international students

UC offers degrees across the main academic disciplines: arts, business, education, health, law, science and technology. It allows Canberra students to do hands-on courses not available at ANU, such as teaching, nursing and physiotherapy. 

UC has a reputation for getting results and its graduates generally do well in the labour market. UC graduates who stay in Canberra benefit from living in Australia's capital. The city provides good job opportunities, especially if you are seeking employment with government agencies and departments.
