Canberra - Confident, Bold and Ready.

Canberra, the national capital of Australia, is located within the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Big things happen here: in politics, science, research, education, business and the arts – creating the potential for exciting careers and opportunities. 

Canberra also has the power to surprise people – with food and wine, with art and culture, with our heritage and with our warm welcome. 

Canberra is built on the collective spirit and potential of Australia’s people – and we welcome everyone. Around 25 per cent of our population were born overseas and every year, thousands of international students choose to study here.

We look to the future, not the past, and we actively pursue our dreams. Are you ready to pursue yours?
