The University has a distinctly global focus, and students have the opportunity to study at more than 80 partner institutions around the world. Staff are leading figures in their field and passionate about giving students the best possible experience during their time at university.
On campus, students will find an extensive range of support services, including academic, careers and Indigenous advisers, and counselling services.
