When it comes to world university rankings, Australia has a strong, proven track record. Across all global ranking systems, criteria and fields of study, Australia ranks highly for quality of education, student satisfaction, and global reputation.
There are a number of university ranking systems in use around the world, three commonly used rankings are:
- Academic Ranking of World Universities (opens in a new window)
- QS World University Rankings (opens in a new window)
- Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings (opens in a new window)
In fact, eight of Australia’s universities feature in the top 100 ranked universities in the world in the latest QS ranking (2014-15). And if you have a specific study area of interest, there is every chance Australia has you covered, with at least three Australian universities in the top 50 worldwide across the study areas of Arts and Humanities, Engineering and Technologies, Natural Sciences, Life Sciences and Medicine and Social Sciences and Management.
Australia also has 16 universities ranked in the top 100 ‘under 50’ (opens in a new window) in the latest Times Higher Education ranking results (2015).
We are proud of the high university rankings Australian has earned, but more importantly, it’s about what you will receive when you study in Australia – a world-class education and opportunities for an unlimited future.
