In the Times Higher Education Young Universities, University of Technology Sydney leads as the world’s 15th best young university, followed by University of South Australia (25th), Curtin University (34th) and RMIT University (76th).

In the QS Top 50 Under 50 Rankings, University of Technology Sydney was recognised as Australia’s best young university (11th in the world). Curtin University (17th), RMIT University (18th) and University of South Australia (29th) were all highly ranked.

ATN Executive Director Luke Sheehy said that the results reflect the positive work our universities do on a domestic and international scale.
