About the university
The University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane is the oldest university in
Queensland and a founding member of the national Group of Eight, an
alliance of research-intensive universities. The University of

attractive. Located seven kilometres from the city's heart on a 114-

landscaped grounds and many playing fields. At the centre of the campus is
a semi-circle of cloistered buildings enclosing the National Trust-listed

collections, including the Fryer Library, which houses the rare book and
manuscript collections.
