Vision for Moreton Bay
USC will develop a full-service campus that will become equal in size to our Sippy Downs campus over the first 10-15 years.
The new campus is expected to cater for up to 10,000 students within the first 10 years, starting from the year 2020. The new campus will be comprehensive from day one offering research and postgraduate programs.
As one of Australia's top universities for teaching quality, USC will deliver face-to-face teaching and a supportive university experience.
The Bridge fly-through
USC's Moreton Bay campus will have a comprehensive offering of programs including law, business, science, engineering and many specialty courses such as mechatronics.
It is expected this program offering will grow to more than 100 courses within 10 years of the campus' operation.
If you did not finish Year 12, or have been in the workforce for some time and are returning to study, USC offers preparatory courses to help your transition into university study.
Location and transport
The new university site is strategically located in close proximity to key transport infrastructure including the Petrie railway station (at the junction of the existing Caboolture Rail Line and the soon-to-be-opened Moreton Bay Rail Link), Gympie Road and the Bruce Highway.
The site is located approximately 20km from Brisbane International Airport, 22km from the Brisbane CBD and 60km to USC's Sippy Downs campus.
