University of Queensland - Australia

The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia's premier learning and research institutions. It is the oldest university in Queensland and has produced generations of graduates who have gone on to become leaders in all areas of society and industry. The University is a founding member of the national Group of Eight, an alliance of research-strong "sandstone" universities committed to ensuring that Australia has higher education institutions which are genuinely world class. It belongs also to the global Universitas 21 alliance. This group aims to enhance the quality of university outcomes through international benchmarking and a joint venture e-learning project with The Thomson Corporation.

UQ continues to attract the vast majority of the state's highest academic achievers and is renowned nationally and internationally for the quality of its teaching and research. In 1998-99 it was named Australia's University of the Year and it continues to enjoy the highest overall rating for Queensland universities in the annual Good Universities Guide.

UQ remains the most successful Australian university in winning and being shortlisted for Australian Awards for University Teaching since they were established in 1997. On a variety of measures it is one of the top three or four research universities in the country and this success was underlined last year when it celebrated its 5000th PhD graduation. UQ also is building a cluster of international-quality research centres and institutes that will keep it at the frontiers of emerging research fields, particularly the biosciences.

The University of Queensland's graduates have a strong record of success in attaining employment and income levels well above average. UQ qualifications are highly regarded by employers everywhere and our graduates form a powerful network of success across all industries and endeavours in all corners of the globe. In recent years, the international standing of UQ has been reinforced with a rapid growth in fee-paying students from abroad, as well as strong growth in postgraduate studies.

American University of Antigua

The American University of Antigua was founded in 2004 by world-class American physicians and medical education professionals, subsequently joined with Manipal University, to create an educational institution on the twin island of Antigua and Barbuda, that would provide a comprehensive modern learning facility for students who aspire to become highly skilled, compassionate physicians and nurses, who plan to practice throughout Canada, the United States and the Caribbean region. This realization would have been hard to imagine in January 2004 when the school first opened its doors with a handful of students. Today, AUA is a growing and vibrant medical school with over 1,400 students, a brand new School of Nursing, and a brand new $60 million dollar campus (under construction).

There are only a few states in the U.S. that require approval for international medical schools. Although less than 5 years old, the AUA program is proud to be one of a handful that has been approved by the State of New York, giving our students the option to complete their clinical training and residencies at NY State-approved hospitals.
