Higher university rankings mean higher price – Study

Australian universities with a higher position in global league tables tend to set higher international tuition fees, writes Natalie Marsh for The PIE News.

The comparative analysis of international student fees in Australia was conducted by recruitment firm Studymove Consultants and looked at close to 4,300 programmes at all 39 Australian universities. A strong correlation emerged between the ranking position and the price of the annual tuition fees for international students.

The institutions’ ranking positions were based on the QS World University Rankings. Australian National University was the country’s highest ranked university, in 19th place, followed by the University of Melbourne at 42nd and the University of Sydney at 45th. All three of these universities have their average international tuition fee set at over A$30,000 (US$23,200).
