Seven up for UTS as Australia’s top in QS young uni ranking
UTS leads in Australia for the seventh year in the newly released QS Top 50 Under 50.
In the wake of a seven-place jump in the QS World University Rankings, The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has been reaffirmed top in Australia in QS’s ranking of “young” universities.
Placed at 11th in the world, UTS leads in Australia for the seventh year in the newly released QS Top 50 Under 50, which breaks out the results for institutions founded less than 50 years ago from its overall world rankings.
In the QS World University Rankings 2021 released two weeks ago, UTS was assessed as performing among the top 12 per cent of universities worldwide in an unbroken record of improvement since 2012.
The result was supported by positive assessments on several performance indicators, but particularly research and academic reputation.
UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs said maintaining the leading position in Australia in the QS Top 50 Under 50 was encouragement that UTS had been on the right course over a number of years and could tackle the substantial challenges now faced by universities and Australian society as a whole.
Now more than ever, we need all our rich people resources working for our country’s prosperity and national wellbeing.

“Everything we do has the long-term best interests of Australia at heart and a key direction for UTS is supporting people through a lifetime of learning – something we were working towards before COVID-19 arrived and now is even more of an imperative,” Professor Brungs said.
“How do we support people all the way through their post-secondary education, so someone coming from school is just as much part of the UTS community as someone who has been out in the workforce four years, or is changing careers 10 years down the track, or who wants to do something new at the age of 65.
“All of those are in the scope of post-secondary education in the post-COVID-19 world, and with an associated focus on innovation, UTS as a university should be looking towards creating thousands of new jobs.
“Now more than ever, we need all our rich people resources working for our country’s prosperity and national wellbeing.”
