About the Universities List

The location information (city and state) and student numbers in the list do not reflect the often complex ways Australian universities are organised.

  • All but a few Australian universities have multiple campuses.
  • Often a university’s campus network spreads across multiple cities and may cross state and even national boundaries.
  • A given student could attend a large main campus, a satellite campus or study through distance education.
