The University of Sydney is ranked 45th in the QS World University Rankings 2015/16 as well as one of the top three universities of Australia. It is one of the  world’s leading, comprehensive research and teaching universities – consistently ranked in the top 0.3 percent of universities in the world.  

Our community – which stretches across the globe – includes more than 50,000 students, 3000 academic staff, and 300,000 alumni.

Leadership has always been at the core of our values. We were one of the first universities in the world to admit students solely on academic merit, and to open our doors to women on the same basis as men. Our aim is to make lives better not just by producing leaders of society, but through equipping our people with the qualities that allow them to serve all of our communities at every level.

In creating the first university in Australia in 1850, our founders recognised the power of education to inspire positive change. We hold that belief just as strongly today.
