CQUniversity Australia has been on a phenomenal trajectory since 2009.

Find out more about our vision and values.
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, with campuses in Adelaide, Brisbane, Bundaberg, Cairns, Emerald, Gladstone, Mackay, Melbourne, Noosa, Perth, Rockhampton, Sydney and Townsville. Along with these campuses the University also operates study centres in Broome, Busselton and Karratha, and delivers programs in Cooma and Geraldton thanks to partnerships with the respective University Centres in those communities.
A renowned research institution and a the benchmark leader for how Universities should engage with their communities, its 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.
