Australian Universities Top the Charts with Regards to Graduate Employability
The Global University Employability Ranking 2018 unveils great news for graduates about employability. Nine Australian universities have made it to this prestigious list and none other than Times Higher Education has reported this impressive piece of information.
According to the QS rankings, Australian universities have made an outstanding mark in graduate employability with University of Sydney(4th rank) and University of Melbourne(7th rank) appearing right up among of the 10 universities in the list of top 100, outdoing prestigious universities like Cambridge and Oxford in the employability index.
Apart from these, two other universities of Australia figured among the world’s top 50 university list. University of New South Wales (UNSW) which was at number 36th position and University of Queensland which rounded up at 49th position.
The QS graduate employability ranking is based on principles like employer and company status, alumni reactions, alliances with employers, student and employer connections and last but not the least employment rate.
Within the country too, University of Sydney emerged as a leader for graduate employability close on heels with the University of Melbourne followed by the University of New South Wales.

There is a conceptual change from the past which emphasised that one can only secure quality employment if one completes their degree from an esteemed university or institution. Today the QS ranking also reinforces that a university which can create an environment of high-quality networking that eventually leads to rewarding employment outcomes also must be part of the list.
