Few universities can boast either their own coral-island marine-studies centre or an experimental mine for mineral research - but Queensland can. Founded in 1909, it offers more than 400 degree programmes and 5,600 subjects taught by an academic and professional staff of around 6,500, including researchers from its main and satellite campuses, to a 45,000-strong student body consisting of 12,000 postgraduate scholars and almost 11,000 students from 134 countries.
