The University of Sydney

The University of Sydney is one of the world’s leading, comprehensive research and teaching universities. We offer an exceptional range of disciplines – more than 400 areas of study – and our community includes more than 74,000 students, 8100 permanent and fixed-term staff and 420,000 alumni in more than 170 countries. 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. Currently ranked equal 19th in the world and equal 2nd in Australia in the QS World University Rankings, the University of Sydney is placed among the top 20 universities in the world.

We partner across industry, government, non-profit and community sectors to answer the biggest questions facing society, business and our communities.
