Few universities can boast either their own coral-island marine-studies centre or an experimental mine for mineral research – but The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia can. Founded in 1909, it offers just under 400 degree programmes and more than 4,000 subjects to a 48,800-strong student body consisting of 12,500 postgraduate scholars and over 11,500 international students from 142 countries.
