The University of Queensland (UQ)

Australia

For more than a century, The University of Queensland (UQ)’s exceptional study experiences, research excellence and collaborative partnerships have delivered knowledge leadership for a better world.

Across UQ’s three campuses, our 7,200 staff and 54,925 students – including almost 20,000 postgraduates and approximately 20,000 international students from 142 countries – teach, research and study.

With a strong focus on teaching excellence, UQ is Australia’s most awarded university for teaching* and attracts the majority of Queensland’s high achievers, as well as top interstate and overseas students.

UQ’s 280,000 graduates are an engaged network of global alumni who span more than 170 countries and include more than 15,400 PhDs.

UQ consistently ranks among the world’s top universities as measured by several key independent rankings, including the CWTS Leiden Ranking (31)**, Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities (39), U.S. News Best Global Universities Rankings (42), QS World University Rankings (46), Academic Ranking of World Universities (54), and Times Higher Education World University Rankings (62).

With a 2019 operating revenue of AU$2.19 billion, including more than $452 million in research investment, UQ’s six faculties and eight globally recognised research institutes cover a remarkable breadth of teaching and research.

In recognition of our research quality, UQ was acknowledged in the 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia initiative for above-world-standard research in 93 specialised fields – more than any other Australian university.

Through UniQuest, UQ’s technology transfer and commercialisation company, UQ is also Australia’s leading university for commercialisation revenue, number of active startup companies and value of equity held in startup companies formed from university intellectual property. 

UQ is one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21, and one of only three Australian charter members of the prestigious edX consortium: the world’s leading not-for-profit consortium of massive open online courses (MOOCs).

* UQ has won more national teaching awards than any other Australian university.
** This ranking is measured by the Impact indicator P, P (top 10 per cent), and PP (top 10 per cent) with fractional counting.

Ecological compensation policies fail to balance losses

© LeoFFreitas/Getty

Protecting or restoring degraded ecosystems is not enough to offset the biodiversity losses associated with industrial development.

Ecological compensation policies are used around the world in an effort to achieve no net loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services, by balancing the destruction resulting from development with the improvement or protection of other areas.

However a modelling study led by researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia found that not one of 18 ecological compensation policies, which were based on existing policies used around the world, met the goal of no net loss of biodiversity, carbon storage and sediment retention.

The success of these policies was limited by the amount of land available for improvement or protection, and the differences in the types of ecosystem losses caused by development and the gains achieved on the land set aside to compensate.
