Welcome to the USQ website

As a post-graduate, you more than likely lead a busy life where making time for anything is invariably a challenge. And yet you have a need to get ahead and make the most of your life – and existing qualification(s). This is where distance learning and distance education comes into its own. Where you can study further, in your own time, at your own pace – from home.

At the University of Southern Queensland, we understand the time pressures of our students (more than 25 000 of them, studying for a variety of programs and courses in over 100 countries) and go out of our way to offer flexibility in learning wherever we can. It is because of this, and our experience and expertise, that today, we’re one of the world’s leading providers of distance education, and one of the world’s most awarded and recognised. So whether you’re set on studying for an MBA, an MBA with Project Management, a Masters in Project Management or anything else, know that in USQ, you’re in particularly good hands.

Distance Education is a popular method of study, and one that is quickly growing around the globe. It allows students to further their skills and improve their qualifications from wherever they are in the world and is ideal for those who wish to work full-time and study part-time.

Why Distance Education, and why USQ?

USQ has been at the forefront of distance education in Australia for more than 25 years. With more than twenty five thousand students choosing to study through distance education each year, the university is well-positioned to provide support to its off-campus students, regardless of their geographical location. There are many advantages attached to studying through distance education. These include:
- the ability to gain the same degree, with the same lecturers, as on- campus students
- the opportunity to study regardless of where you are in the world
- the opportunity to meet other life commitments, such as work, family or travel whilst studying
- the ability to vary the number of courses you take in a semester to suit your circumstances
- the ability to study a part of your degree by distance learning and part on-campus if your circumstances change
- the ability to have a study program designed to suit your needs
- the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our courses are internationally recognised and accredited, (testament to the fact that you’re studying with one of world’s finest and most awarded distance learning providers)
