37 Australian universities are included among the world’s best in the 2018 edition of the QS World University Rankings®, two more than last year. The good news doesn’t stop there though: seven Australian universities are in the global top 100, while a further 10 are in the top 300, with many institutions improving their positions this year. Want to study in Australia? We're not surprised! It's one of the world's most popular study destinations, and it's not difficult to understand why... What comes to mind when you think of Australia? Sandy beaches and a deep azure ocean, cold cans of lager, and barbeques? Perhaps you might add some weird and wonderful creatures (including some poisonous enough to kill you), miles upon miles of unpeopled wilderness, and an almost maniacal love of sport. There is a large element of truth to these common suppositions. Australia does boast two beaches known as the Eighty Mile Beach and Ninety Mile Beach (and 10,683 other smaller beaches on its mainland alone); Australians – particularly students – do enjoy a drink on the weekend; and the warm weather does indeed lend itself to the outdoor preparation of food. But this by no means an entire portrait of the country - for one thing, it misses out any mention of Australia's impressive higher education system, which was ranked fourth in the QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings 2016.
