Research strength helps lift UTS’s world ranking
UTS is on the rise again with a seven-place jump in the latest QS World University Rankings.
The University of Technology Sydney’s year-on-year improvement in world university rankings has continued with a seven-place jump in the latest QS ranking to 133rd in the world.
In the QS World University Rankings 2021 UTS is assessed as performing among the top 12 per cent of universities worldwide, maintaining its ninth position among Australian universities.
UTS’s unbroken record of improvement since 2012 is supported by results in several indicators, but particularly Citations by Faculty, which was the strongest indicator in this assessment.
Australian universities in general are tracking very well with their research outputs in terms of volume and citation growth, but UTS is definitely at the forefront of this growth alongside other young/similar universities.

The ranking was also boosted by improvements in the criteria of Academic Reputation and International Students. QS says that since 2014 UTS moved up 139 places.
UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs said it was pleasing to again have confirmation of UTS’s growing recognition on the world stage, as reflected in the research and academic reputation indicators.
“UTS has yet again achieved excellent growth in publication outputs and significant citation growth over the past 12 months,” Professor Brungs said.
“Australian universities in general are tracking very well with their research outputs in terms of volume and citation growth, but UTS is definitely at the forefront of this growth alongside other young/similar universities such as Curtin, RMIT, QUT and Wollongong.”
