Western achieves a perfect score in international ratings

Western Sydney University has achieved the highest possible overall rating of 5 stars in the latest QS Stars University Ratings — an evaluation system that assesses universities worldwide.

The University also now holds a 5-star rating across six of the eight interest areas assessed including: employability, internationalisation, facilities, inclusiveness, innovation and teaching — representing a rise in ratings across two areas year-on-year.

Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Barney Glover AO, welcomed the strong performance of the University.

“This is an achievement that highlights Western’s ongoing commitment to being a world-class and internationally recognised university, significantly strengthening our position and reputation from year-to-year.

The ratings are a testament to the significant work that is being done to broaden the University’s international standing while maintaining a strong commitment to our region,” says Professor Glover.

QS Stars is an international rating system that identifies which universities rate highest across specific categories.
