Swinburne University of Technology: Swinburne climbs 25 places to Top 300 globally

Swinburne University of Technology has climbed 25 places to number 296 in the QS University World Rankings 2023, claiming a coveted Top 300 spot.

The latest rankings success follows a period of significant growth and achievement for Swinburne, with the university rising more than 200 places in the QS rankings since 2015.

The result confirms Swinburne’s place in the Top 1% of universities globally in both the QS rankings and the latest Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).

Swinburne’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Karen Hapgood said, “Swinburne is a young university with a long history and we are proud to be building a prototype of a new and different university.

“In the year that Swinburne celebrates 30 years of being a university, this recognition tells the world what we already knew: that Swinburne is a player on the global stage. We are here to solve real-world, global problems – and that is exactly what we are doing through our research, education and the broader impact we have on our communities near and far,” Professor Hapgood said.

The QS rankings look at a university’s academic success, employer reputation, student to faculty ratio, international student ratio, employment outcomes and research citations.

Swinburne is also ranked in the 2021 QS Top 50 Under 50, placing number 45, and in the 2022 THE Young University Rankings, placing at number 50.
