RMIT has just announced that the university is now ranked 18th globally for universities under 50 years and is listed among the world’s top 30 universities with a technological orientation.

Vice-Chancellor and President Martin Bean CBE said he was delighted that RMIT’s standing as a leader in education, research and collaboration continued to improve globally.

“Our focus on pursuing research with impact; our commitment to industry connectivity, employer partnerships, and practical student experiences; and our unwavering dedication to preparing our students for the future of work is truly being recognized on a global scale,” he said.

According to Martin, the whole world has been dealing with the unexpected challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which requests a change in the approach for not only to survive but sustainable development as well. The same with RMIT since the way it collaborates and connects to address shared challenges and capture new opportunities “is more important than ever”, he added.

While RMIT held its spot at eighth in Australia for employer reputation, it was also ranked 39th in East Asia and the Pacific and 130th globally.

These results follow a strong performance in the  QS Graduate Employability rankings released in September 2019, where RMIT rose to 77th globally.

The University was ranked 77th, strengthening its place in the top 100 global universities for the fourth consecutive year and maintaining its rank as eighth in Australia and top 25 in Asia Pacific.

The Rankings highlighted the top 500 institutions based on five key areas of graduate employability – employer partnerships, graduate employment, employer reputation, employer-student connections and alumni outcomes.

In the rankings announced recently, RMIT continued its improvement in international appeal, with an international faculty ranking of 33rd and an international students ranking of 89th globally, up six places for both indicators compared with last year.

The University also rose 63 places in citations per faculty to 381st and ranked 11th in Australia and 220th in the world for academic reputation – an increase of two places globally. 

RMIT also ranked 10th overall in the 2020 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, showcasing RMIT’s continued progress against the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

With 84 per cent of Australian universities included in the QS World University Rankings (36 universities) compared with 5 per cent and 54 per cent of US and UK universities respectively; these rankings continue to highlight RMIT as a top choice for a quality university education.
