Strategic priorities

QUT Real World Learning 2020 Vision

QUT graduates will thrive in volatile environments over the long term, contribute productively as individuals and in teams and combine depth in professional knowledge with broad perspectives based on exposure to new ideas and different cultures.

QUT's real world learning experience will reflect the physical and digital nature of the world in which we live and work. QUT research aims to provide solutions to real world problems.
