Young Australian Unis Thrive in Global Rankings


Fourteen of Australia’s universities have been rated as some of the best in the world, in recent international rankings of universities less than 50 years old.

The oldest universities in the QS Top 50 Under 50 and the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 were established in 1963, and the lists are a stark contrast to other global university rankings, where universities with more than a century of teaching and research behind them usually dominate.

The rankings recognise how far these universities have come in such a short space of time, and perhaps hint at which institutions are the ones to watch as they become even more established.

Below are Australia’s results in each survey:
