University of the Sunshine Coast


Welcome to the University of the Sunshine Coast, UniSC for short. A young, fresh university driven by an unwavering belief that community and culture is just as important as a world-class education, delivered by world-class educators.

We may not be the biggest university, but we're growing fast, and doing big things. Like ground-breaking research, championing sustainability, producing gold-winning athletes and award-winning alumni.

Our first campus, on the Sunshine Coast, opened its doors in 1996. Today, our award-winning facilities span five campuses across South East Queensland, an area of unique geographical importance. In fact, UniSC is the world's only university with campuses on three connecting UNESCO biosphere reserves and the World Heritage Listed K'gari.

While we acknowledge and learn from the past, as a young university, we aren't confined by the red tape found inside sandstone institutions. So you're never going to be bombarded by stale traditions or hear phrases like “That's the way we've always done it

Our job is to empower fresh thinkers and ambitious minds to create positive change and ways of thinking that moves everyone forward. And our students, staff and researchers work hard every day to do just that.

Together with our people, community and partners, we're building a safe, sustainable, supportive, future-focused and fun learning environment, where lifelong friends are made, and opportunities are earned.

We invite you to learn, experience and gain the tools you need to not just create a better tomorrow for yourself, but for the communities and planet you live on.
