A grand old name helps in QS
“Rankings don’t measure everything we value, but pleased to see strong showing by Australian universities among the world’s top 50,” Uni Sydney DVC R Duncan Ivison, via Twtter yesterday. Professor Ivison was referring to the new QS World University ranking in which Uni Sydney ranks 42nd in the world, just behind Uni Melbourne and a bit down from ANU at 24th.
It would be dire if these three did not do well on QS – it bases half of ratings on academic and employer survey opinions. ANU and unis Melbourne and Sydney have to be among the six best-known universities in the country.
