The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is home to one of the nation’s most significant cities. As Australia’s capital, Canberra boasts some of the country’s preeminent educational and cultural institutions. Canberra is welcoming, inclusive and safe, making it one of the most liveable cities in the world. It’s a place where students can find their community and make it their own.

Canberra offers more than a world-class education. This young, vibrant city is a hotbed for innovation and business growth. With Australia’s highest employment rate and highest average income, graduates enjoy strong employment outcomes across a range of sectors.

Known for its clear skies and clean air, over 60% of the ACT is dedicated to parks and protected nature reserves – perfect for hiking, camping, and getting up close to native animals. Its location also provides easy access to Australia’s biggest snowfields in winter and the pristine beaches of the south coast in summer.

Take the stress out of moving – Canberra has more purpose-built student accommodation per capita than any other Australian city. The major universities offer guaranteed accommodation for new undergraduate students. It’s easy to get around to all the festivals, concerts, galleries, and sporting events, and all students receive discounts on the bus and light rail networks.

Whatever your interests, you’ll find your people and your place in Canberra.
