The 2020 QS World University Rankings have just been released. Australian universities has performed very well with 24 of Australia’s 35 universities rising in their ranks. Australia also have 7 universities in the world’s top 100, quite an achievement given Australia’s limited number of universities compared to other countries. On the other hand, countries such as the United States has recorded its worst performance on record. Only 16% of US universities improve their rank.
Whilst overall rankings are important, students are reminded that they should also consider other factors when deciding which university to attend. This may include subject rankings that more relevant to your field of studies, internship opportunities, class sizes, support for international students, university facilities, graduate outcomes and employability, etc.
