Who we are

Usq arms.gif
The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has forged a reputation as one of Australia's leading providers of on-campus and distance education programs, with 75% of all USQ students studying by distance (online) education.

The University's vision is 'to be recognised as a world leader in open and flexible higher education'. USQ has a commitment to provide the 'highest quality educational experiences to students, irrespective of their location or lifestyle' USQ's academic and organisational model is significantly different from many other Australian universities. Progressing from its role as a leading distance education provider, the University has diversified its operations to include a far greater mix of open and flexible programs that meet the education needs of its communities.
