MacQuarie University, Sydney Australia

Macquarie University has recently been ranked number 1 in Australia and 16th worldwide of universities under the age of 50 by the QS World University Rankings. The university has also been ranked number 1 in Australia and 33rd worldwide in the top 100 universities under the age of 50 by the Times Higher Education.

Australian universities account for 20% of the total universities in the global ranking of 50, which is the most number of universities for any country. Universities Australia Chief Executive, Belinda Robinson, said “Australia has more universities than any other country in the world listed in the top 50, making it one of the world’s most favourable study destinations’’.

The Times Higher Education re-iterates this point by stating that Australia is an outstanding performer, with 14 institutions among the 100 Under 50, making it the second-strongest nation on the list. Australia's under-50s are led by Macquarie University (founded in 1964) and the University of Wollongong (1975),  followed by the Queensland University of Technology (40th) in a group that includes most members of the Australian Technology Network of Universities’

Australia's strong performance reflected its "economic position at the crossroads between East and West", QS (Quacquarelli Symonds Limited) intelligence unit head Ben Sowter says. This is an outstanding result for Australia and reinforces what most Australians and others already know; Australia is, by world standards, a great place to pursue a university education.

The results by QS World University Rankings provides a new way of comparing the newer universities globally. The QS ranking holds a prestigious place in university rankings, as it is based on the levels of graduate employment and more specifically, on employers’ impressions of the best quality programs. The Times Higher Education ranking of universities under 50 years old has also published similar results and will be out soon.

Apart from direct entry into the university, students with SPM, O level, Form 5, SM2
qualifications can consider its foundation pathway on campus in Sydney.
Hurry now, you can still make it to the coming July 2012 intakes!!
