CQUniversity Australia has been on a phenomenal trajectory since 2009. Its remarkable growth in student numbers, new courses, new campuses, infrastructure, research impact and reputation has seen the University emerge as one of Australia’s truly great universities.

Originally founded in Rockhampton in 1967 as the Queensland Institute of Technology (QIT) Capricornia, it was awarded full university status in 1992, and now has more than 30,000 students spread across 25 campuses and locations Australia-wide. This reach has firmly established CQUniversity as one of the largest universities based in regional Australia. 

The University delivers more than 300 education and training offerings, from short courses and certificates, through to undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. As a pioneer in the delivery of distance education, CQUniversity continues to be a leader in this area, with almost half of the current student cohort being made up of students studying off-campus, many of whom are based in rural and remote areas. Along with this, CQUniversity is also proud to have the highest ratio of students from disadvantaged backgrounds, defining itself by who it embraces rather than who it excludes. It is because of this that CQUniversity is widely recognised as Australia’s most inclusive university.

CQUniversity’s unique vision for diversity, outreach, engagement, research, learning and teaching, and equity have led to it being recognised within the top 500 universities in the World, and among the top 150 universities under 50 years old by the prestigious Times Higher Education World University Rankings. CQUniversity is also ranked among the world’s top universities by the international QS World Universities ranking system. 

CQUniversity’s strong engagement agenda and track record of working with community, industry and government to identify solutions to complex problems and ensuring stakeholders directly benefit from everything the university does has also led to it being recognised as Australia’s only Changemaker Campus by global social innovation group Ashoka U.

CQUniversity’s record of achievement over the past few years is matched only by the ambitious aspirations it has set itself over the coming five years, with a continued expansion of student success, research excellence, social innovation and community engagement firmly in its sights.
