The University of Sydney has secured its highest ever ranking overall and continues to be rated as a top 20 global university in the 2025 QS World University Rankings.

The University surpassed its previous result of 19th to be placed 18th globally, and 2nd in Australia in the prestigious QS rankings.

The impressive result was due to the University’s strong performance in sustainability, academic reputation, employer reputation, citations to research papers and its international research network.

For sustainability, the University kept its rank of 7th globally and first in Australia.

This exceptional result in these highly regarded rankings is a credit to all our staff and an endorsement of the vision of our 2032 Strategy to champion sustainability and continue to achieve excellence in research, teaching, learning and the student experience.

That commitment includes our unprecedented investment in recruiting the best early and mid-career researchers and educators from around the world with 40 Sydney Horizon Fellowships and 220 Sydney Horizon Educators, and in the Sydney Biomedical Accelerator, a nation-leading biomedical precinct to fast-track research and patient care in New South Wales.

It is only through these investments that we and other Australian universities can continue to be competitive and recognised on the world stage. These results demonstrate again that Australian higher education is a global powerhouse.

Australia has three universities in the top 20, six in the top 50 and nine in the top 100 in the global rankings.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Emma Johnston said, “I congratulate our academics on this result, which follows hard on the heels of our strong performance in the 2024 QS World University Rankings by Subject, with six disciplines ranked in the global top 20 and 36 in the top 50.

“Strong rankings reflect our well-established connections with critical stakeholders including government, industry and the community, as well as the important new discoveries we make and translate as our research community addresses pressing global challenges.

“I’m especially proud that our research is having such impressive global impact and, given my own background as an environmental scientist, that the University is first in Australia for sustainability.”

The QS World University Rankings are among the most comprehensive rankings of their kind, and this year’s rankings feature 1,503 universities from 106 locations (from 5,663 institutions evaluated overall).
