Swinburne has improved its position in the QS World University Rankings, driven by our strong research citation performance.
The annual QS World University rankings are calculated based on a methodology that measures academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, research citations per faculty, international faculty ratio and international student ratio.
This year, Swinburne ranks 372nd in the world, up 11 positions from last year’s rankings.
“Swinburne researchers continue to lead in research discoveries in a range of fields. Their work has been acknowledged in distinguished publications and garnered the recognition of the international research community,” says Swinburne Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Enterprise), Professor Bronwyn Fox.
Some of Swinburne’s achievements include:
Since 2015, Swinburne has established a strong progression in the QS ranking system reflecting the university’s commitment to high-quality teaching and research and graduate outcomes.

The QS rankings are viewed as one of the world's leading higher education league tables, along with the Academic Ranking of World Universities and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
