Australia is represented by 36 universities in the QS World University Rankings 2021, which was issued recently. Only six of these universities have seen their rankings drop this year, with the vast majority of Australian institutions seeing considerable improvements.

Despite losing two places in the rankings, the Australian National University (ANU) is once again the top university in Australia this year, according to the Times Higher Education ranking.

According to the rankings, each university is evaluated based on factors such as academic and employer reputations, research impact, and a variety of other factors.

Australian National University (ANU)

For the second year in a row, Australian National University (ANU) has been declared the greatest university in Australia, with scores in the top 50 globally on practically every metric, including academic reputation, international faculty, international students, and citations per faculty ratio.

The Australian National University's main campus is in Acton, Canberra, although it has satellite campuses around New South Wales and the Northern Territory.

University of Sydney

After moving up two places this year, the University of Sydney is now Australia's second-best university, ranked 40th globally. In the indicators for international professors and international students, it receives perfect scores.

The University of Sydney, Australia's first university, was founded in 1850 and is a member of the Group of Eight.

University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne has dropped three places to 41st in the world from previous year. It is the highest-ranked Australian institution in terms of academic and employer reputation, and it is among the top 30 universities in the world in both categories. It belongs to the Group of Eight.

With students from more than 130 countries, international students make up 42 percent of the university's student body.

University of New South Wales (UNSW)

The University of New South Wales is now rated 44th in the world (UNSW). The University of New South Wales is Australia's fourth-best university, despite falling one spot in this year's international university rankings.

UNSW is a founding member of the Group of Eight, a collaboration of Australia's research-intensive universities. With the exception of the faculty-to-student ratio, all of the criteria position the university in the top 50.

University of Queensland

To begin, we'll look at the University of Queensland (UQ), which has climbed one spot to 46th this year.

Among the university's graduates are two Nobel Laureates, Peter C. Dogerty and John Harsanyi; Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush; and celebrities in government, law, research, public service, and the arts. A number of recent breakthroughs, including the cervical cancer vaccine, have been credited to UQ researchers.

Monash University

Monash University is now ranked 55th, up three spots from last year. It is ranked 43rd among the top 50 academic institutions in the world, with a flawless score in the international students indicator.

Monash University is headquartered in Melbourne, but it has five campuses around Victoria and two international campuses in Malaysia and South Africa.

University of Western Australia (UWA)

The University of Western Australia, the first of seven Australian universities to be ranked among the world's top 100 universities, falls five places to 92nd in 2021.

The University of Western Australia outperforms all other Australian universities in terms of both the proportion of overseas faculty members and the amount of citations received by each individual faculty member (a measure of research output).

Founded in 1874, the Institution of Adelaide is Australia's third oldest university and is placed joint 106th in the world in the latest edition of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

University of Wollongong

The University of Wollongong has broken into the Australian top ten this year, moving 16 places to 196th in the world. The university ranks 75th in the world in terms of citations per faculty, indicating that its research output is of excellent quality.
