The University of Canberra prides itself on delivering graduates equipped with the skills and attributes necessary to succeed in their chosen professions. Australia’s capital university located in canberra, the nation’s capital, the university of canberra occupies a unique position at the intersection of government policy and corporate endeavour. There is a strong focus on creative and critical thinking, and work integrated learning. This coupled with access to professional skills, networks and internships prepares students for their professional life, and makes our graduates popular with employers. Once again in 2010, the university was awarded the maximum 5-stars for ‘getting a job’ and graduate outcomes by the Australian Good Universities Guide. Many of our students go on to responsible senior positions and careers in the professions, the corporate world and the government public services of many countries. Others have become prominent writers, designers, journalists and sports men and women. Vibrant social life Concentrated study needs to be balanced with relaxation. The campus offers a variety of coffee shops, restaurants and fast food outlets.
