UNSW retains 5 star plus rating

UNSW is one of only eight universities in the world to be awarded a 5 Star Plus badge for excellence from the QS Intelligence Unit.

It’s the second time UNSW has achieved the maximum 5 star plus rating, after being the first university in the world to receive the honour in 2012.

UNSW received the highest rating in all eight categories assessed and is joined in the top category by heavyweights such as MIT, Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University and Seoul National University.  

“UNSW is recognised as one of the top achievers in Australian higher education, consistently scoring highly in a range of national and international rankings. This is yet more evidence of UNSW's world-leading performance,” said Fiona Docherty, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International).  “We are very proud to have yet again achieved such an outstanding result.” 

The QS ratings system aims to provide institutions with a broader range of criteria that allow them to stand out in their particular areas of excellence. 

Core areas evaluated included teaching, research, employability, internationalisation, facilities, access, innovation, and specialist criteria in social sciences and management. 

QS highlighted the increased number of prolific academic experts at UNSW and the University's excellent results in both academic and employer surveys as central to achieving the maximum score, "indicating not only a recognition in the domestic market but also in the international sphere".

“Such a prestigious evaluation only helps to further raise our international profile and is well received by students and the global education community,” Docherty said. “Our continued success in a variety of international rankings and ratings metrics is proof that our academic quality and graduate outcomes are second to none.”
