Following on from UTS's leap last month in the 2018 QS World University Rankings, which saw it rise to 176th globally, the university has been placed 8th in the world in the QS Top 50 Under 50 Ranking announced today (13 July) and once again top ranked in Australia.

In April UTS was ranked 15th in the world and first in Australia in the 2017 Times Higher Education Young University Rankings.
