UNSW is among the top three Australian universities for graduates finding jobs, according to the latest rankings.

Of the 500 institutions published in the 2018 QS Graduate Employability Rankings, UNSW is ranked third in Australia and 36th in the world.

The QS ranking follows last month’s maximum five-star rating for ‘Getting a Job’ in the Good Universities Guide

The QS Graduate Employability Rankings were launched in 2015. As well as graduate employment outcomes, they rate employer reputation, partnerships with employers, presence of employers on campus and achievements of alumni.

UNSW scored very highly in Employer Reputation (94.7%) and Alumni Outcomes (90%). It was also above the Australian average for Partnerships with Employers and Research Collaboration with Leading Companies.

“Following the Good Universities Guide five-star rating for getting a job, the QS rankings reinforce how highly sought after our graduates are in the workforce,” said Professor Merlin Crossley, UNSW Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education).
