Study science at Australia's national university

Befitting the University’s place among the top universities on the planet*, our academics produce research which changes lives, and life as we know it. We are committed to solving problems through big picture and applied scientific research, to better health, and to the sustainable, secure and equitable use of resources around the world.

Our students learn from these world-class researchers, as do Australia’s policy-makers ­— with our expertise and influence extending to our Canberra neighbours, leaders in government and industry, and beyond.

We are proud of our standing, our history and our achievements. In the past 60 years we have produced four Nobel Laureates, some of Australia’s most pre-eminent scientists and thousands of graduates with a world-class education in science and medicine.

But nothing excites us quite as much as our future. We hope you can be part of it.
