The University of Southern Queensland is a young dynamic university dedicated to providing quality programs and degrees, and ensuring our graduates are given the best possible opportunities to succeed. We stand-out from the crowd because we are committed to seeing our students achieve academically and personally. While we are a regional university our perspective is global. Our degrees are relevant and our lecturers are leaders in their fields. USQ has a unique culture focusing on flexibility, small class sizes and support.

Small classes and personal attention mean our lecturers know you by name - and they want to see you succeed, just as much as you do. Our lecturers are leaders in their fields who, like our programs, stay up-to-date with the constantly changing face of industry and programs have been developed so you can make the most of your university experience.

USQ main campus is located in Toowoomba, one of Australia’s largest inland cities, situated just a two hour drive west of Brisbane. There are over 4000 students enrolled at the Toowoomba campus studying in the areas of Business, Communication, Creative Arts, Health, Humanities, Education, Engineering and Spatial Science, Information Technology, Law and Sciences.

USQ also offers online (distance) learning course. Studying online (distance) education means you are provided with all your study materials online, as well as supplementary content in the mail. These materials are divided into comprehensive weekly portions, keeping your studies in line with what’s happening on-campus and with the flexibility to study at your own pace during the semester- whether you would like to study part-time or full time. One course should take up 8- 10 hours a week of your time. You will have access to your lecturers and fellow classmates through forums, chat, email and phone. Visit website for more info.
