The nursing and midwifery programs at the University of Technology Sydney are ranked fourth in the world and number one in Australia in the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject.
The result is a substantial lift on 2016’s QS subject ranking of 20th in the world.
“This outstanding result in our global rankings position reflects the high-quality nursing education provided by UTS and our commitment to producing work-ready nurses and midwives able to perform with distinction across the health care system,” said Professor John Daly, Dean of the Faculty of Health.
“As a bold, young university, we look to bring innovative and practice-based nursing to life, focusing on teaching excellence, ground-breaking research and healthcare leadership.
“Australians continue to hold the profession of nursing in the highest esteem and we can be rightly proud of our contribution over more than three decades to educating so many of those passionate and dedicated nurses.”
Nursing and midwifery students at UTS become familiar with real-world environments from day one, with access to start-of-the-art facilities and clinical practice laboratories and an emphasis on contemporary patient and family centred healthcare.
On the international stage, the UTS World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Development provides leadership and support for nurses and midwives throughout our region.
The QS World University Rankings by Subject highlight the world’s top universities over 42 subjects, based on academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact.
The results announced rank UTS among the top 50 universities in the world in three other subject areas – Art and Design (29th, 3rd in Australia), Sports-related Subjects (41st, 5th in Australia) and Law (43rd, 6th in Australia) – and in the top 100 for a further five subject areas.
