Western Sydney University graduate success recognised in world rankings
An international ranking that rates graduate employability has confirmed Western Sydney University's growing reputation as an institution of choice for employers.
The QS Graduate Employability Rankings measure a range of criteria to determine the employment outcomes of graduates from across the world.
More than 720 universities took part, with Western Sydney University ranked 14th in Australia for employability and 245th worldwide.
The QS rankings applied a range of criteria to judge employability, including:
- Employer reputation
- Partnerships with employers
- Alumni outcomes
- Employer's presence on campus
- Graduate employment rate
The result comes after Western Sydney University's overall score in the 2015-2016 QS World University Rankings increased by 6 per cent.
In those rankings, Western Sydney University scored highly both for its research, and particularly for its performance in the fields of humanities, social sciences and management.
