Global success and opportunities

Be prepared to be headhunted.

We are highly regarded around the world. Our graduates are the number one choice in Australia and they receive some of Australia’s highest starting salaries. 

Your successful career starts here

From day one, we will develop you as a leader in your field. You will be offered a wide range of electives, including internships, clinics and overseas intensive study trips, to ensure you are job-ready when you graduate. Throughout your career, you will always be the one that stands out from the crowd.

Programs designed for your career

We understand there is an immediate relationship between what you learn in the classroom and what industries need. That’s why we have conducted extensive research to match our world-class programs with job opportunities in Australia and around the world. As a student, you will be guided by academic and industry leaders, giving you the best mix of theory and practice.

Award-winning teachers and academics

Our teaching methods are progressive and award-winning because they prepare students for life in the workplace. Studying with us means you’ll be learning from academics, professors and researchers who are recognised leaders in their fields and in education. 

Stronger links to industry

Our close relationships with industry, companies and research bodies bridge the gap between study and work. To ensure our Faculties retain strong industry links and continue to produce innovative and relevant research, many have established Faculty Advisory Councils. Council members are leaders in their fields, business, government and associations. They lend their expertise to our staff and students and help shape our degrees.

You will be given access to a wide range of career development services and events to equip you with the skills and experience you need.
