Vice-Chancellor Dr Michael Spence said the results reflected the university’s teaching excellence and quality of its global graduates.

“The results once again place us as one of the best higher learning institutions in the world and reflect the quality of our graduates, who are making a difference in communities locally, nationally and internationally.”

Dr Spence pointed to alumni such as Dr Anna Lau, who was at front line in the fight against Ebola when the highly infectious virus made its way to the United States in 2014; as well as Jack Manning Bancroft, who founded the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) while still studying in 2005; and Gideon Silverman, who after graduating in 2009, founded two startups and is now a product manager at Google, based in San Francisco.

“With world-leading teachers, comprehensive support offerings such as mentoring programs and study workshops, and more than 300 global partnerships for exchange and workplace opportunities, our students graduate as global citizens, ready to succeed and innovate in the workplace,” Dr Spence said.

The Times Higher Education Global Employability University Rankings are published by the UK’s leading global provider of rankings and statistics on the world’s higher education sector.
The University of Sydney currently ranks 60 in the highly regarded Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
