The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s leading research and teaching institutions. We strive for excellence through the creation, preservation, transfer and application of knowledge. For more than a century, we have educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world. UQ is in the top 100 universities worldwide, measured through a number of major independent university rankings. UQ is one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21, a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities, and a member of Universities Australia. UQ is proud to partner with research institutions and industry across the globe and we currently have partnerships in 49 countries. UQ also has linkages that allow 17 per cent of UQ students to undertake overseas experiences during their studies. In 2015, the University had 50,836 students including 12,666 international students from 141 nations. It has one of Australia's largest PhD enrolments, with more than 13,800 postgraduate students, and celebrated its 12,000th PhD graduation in 2015.

Research strengths in the broad fields of law, social science, political science, psychology and communications at UQ include social justice, governance and citizenship, responsibility to protect, transnational and comparative contexts, conflict resolution and peace-building, crime and social justice, gender equality, international relations, social psychology, anthropology, media transformations, and many other subject areas that cross the interdisciplinarity of genocide studies. The Federal Government’s 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia exercise confirmed UQ as one of the nation’s top three universities, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of specialised research fields. UQ’s outstanding critical mass offers researchers significant interdisciplinary capability. The assessment rated ninety five percent of UQ’s broad fields of research as above or well above world standard.

The University’s main campus at St Lucia is set on a magnificent 114-hectare site bounded on all sides by the Brisbane River, seven kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. The campus has expansive landscaped grounds, three lakes, an aquatic centre, tennis courts, eight athletics ovals with a 600-seat grandstand, and facilities for elite rowing. The campus fans out from a 1930s, heritage-listed sandstone Cloister enclosing the Great Court. The campus is accessible by road by bus and by river on the CityCat.
