Global Consortia

We are a member of a number of global networks that enhance the opportunities for global collaboration for our staff and students.

Group of Eight (Go8)Group of Eight logo

We are a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8), a leading group of Australian universities that collectively enrolls one-third of all university students and conducts 70 per cent of all university research in Australia. The Go8 has international alliances and agreements with Universities and research organisations in Brazil, China (with the C9 - China’s leading research-intensive universities), Chile, France, and Germany. It is a signatory to the prestigious Hefei statement which links UQ with elite university groups around the world.

We are one of only three Australian members of Universitas 21 a select international network of comprehensive, research-intensive universities committed to world-best quality and practice. The network’s purpose is to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between the member universities and to create opportunities for them on a scale that would otherwise not be possible, such as student exchanges, research conferences and summer schools.
