Welcome to the Regional University Centres (RUC) Network. RUCs help students in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia participate and succeed in tertiary education through the provision of support and facilities. The RUC Network connects the people working in RUCs nationwide.
RUCs reflect the diversity of Australia’s people and places. RUCs are embedded within their communities and support successful tertiary outcomes for local students. This video of photos from RUCs across the country celebrates this diversity and success.Learn more
