    Australian top universities

    When choosing a university in Australia, there are a lot of things to consider. There is no one university that is best for all students, since different things matter to different people.  

    First, there is there is the characteristics of a uni — what are the teachers like, and how many students will be in a class? There’s the experience you have once you enrol at uni – how much support is there, and how good are the learning resources? And finally, the outcome of your studying experience – how likely you are to get a job, and much you could earn as a graduate.  

    Each year we release a fresh batch of university rankings, which reveal Australia’s top performing universities in 13 different categories. These ratings provide a series of rankings and insights on Australian universities, helping you in the decision-making process when deciding where to study.  

    You can also filter these ratings by postgraduate level — and for some rating types, you can filter by the area of study you’re interested in. If you’ve already got your heart set on moving to a particular part of Australia, you can filter by state to narrow down your options.  

    The 13 rating types are listed in the table below, and we’ve listed the university that ranked highest in each rating category for undergraduate courses.
