About Queensland University of Technology and Scholarship 

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia’s major coastal metropolis of Brisbane is home to the public research institution known as Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove are the two Brisbane-area campuses where QUT is situated. The Queensland Institute of Technology (QIT) was transformed into a university in 1989 by the Queensland University of Technology Act 1988, and the ensuing Queensland University of Technology began operations in January 1989. This is how the university now exists. Brisbane College of Advanced Education and QUT joined in 1990.

In 2020, QUT had 52,672 students, including 39,156 undergraduate, 10,390 graduate, and 661 non-award students. It will also have a workforce of 5,049 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees, generate $1.054 billion in total income, and spend $1.028 billion in total. The Top 100 Under 50 Years World Young University Rankings category of the 2013 Times Higher Education World University Rankings named QUT as Australia’s best university under the age of 50. QUT was ranked first in Australia and 26th globally in that category.


The Times Higher Education World University Rankings assigned it the 28th global ranking in THE Top 150 Under 50 Years category in 2016 and the 24th global ranking in the Top 200 Under 50 Years category in 2017. Both times, it achieved the second-highest and top-two positions in Australia. The 2018 Top 250 Under 50 Years World Young University Rankings place QUT at number 20 globally. According to the QS Top 50 Under 50 Years World Young University Rankings for 2019 and 2020, QUT is rated 19th overall.
