About University Study in Australia: Queensland University of Technology
Australia's varied landscape, cultural diversity, and rich history offer something for everyone. If you are looking for beach or desert, bustling cities or quaint towns, Australia has it. With a population of just over 2 million people, and with 25% of Brisbane residents born overseas, Brisbane is seen as Australia's new world city.
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a dynamic university that offers study abroad students creative, multi-disciplinary approaches to social sciences, humanities and performing arts in addition to highly innovative technology courses. If you are majoring in media, creative design, fashion, business, education, enhineering, or I.T., then QUT might just be the perfect place for you!
