When Charles William Wentworth proposed the idea of Australia’s first university in 1850, he imagined “the opportunity for the child of every class to become great and useful in the destinies of this country”.
We’ve stayed true to that original value and purpose by promoting inclusion and diversity for the past 160 years.
It's the reason that, as early as 1881, we admitted women on an equal footing to male students. Oxford University didn't follow suit until 30 years later, and Jesus College at Cambridge University did not begin admitting female students until 1974.
It's also why, from the very start, talented students of all backgrounds were given the chance to access further education through bursaries and scholarships.
Today we offer hundreds of scholarships to support and encourage talented students, and a range of grants and bursaries to those who need a financial helping hand.
We were ranked 45 in the world in the 2015-16 prestigious QS World University Rankings.
It’s testimony to the broad spectrum of strengths displayed across our 16 faculties, many of which have impressive rankings themselves.
Leading the University’s results were Arts and Humanities, which achieved a rank of equal 14th globally and second in Australia.
Both Life Sciences and Medicine and Social Sciences and Management were ranked 20th in the world, with Life Sciences and Medicine also maintaining their standing as second in Australia for the third year running.
The multi-disciplinary strength of the University’s research was confirmed in the QS results, with Engineering and Technology, Natural Sciences and Social Science and Management all ranked in the top five for their disciplines in Australia, each receiving a ranking of third domestically. Engineering and Technology also rose 14 places in the rankings from joint 44th to joint 30th globally.
