1. In 2022QS World University Rankings, 7 Australian universities are among the top 100
Recently, the global higher education research organization Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) released the latest 2022 global university rankings. The QS ranking, the academic ranking of world universities and the Times Higher Education Ranking are regarded as the three most widely read university rankings in the world.
QS will rank colleges and universities based on academic reputation, teacher-student ratio, number of college citations, employer reputation, international student ratio, and international employee ratio every year. The latest ranking of 2022 includes 1,300 universities from all over the world, including 85 different countries and regions, which is the largest ranking in QS history.
The number one university in the world is still the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States, which won full marks in the selection and has been named the best university in the world for ten consecutive years.
Australia's top ranking is the Australian National University ANU, followed by the University of Melbourne and the University of Sydney. It is worth noting that ANU's world ranking has advanced 4 places compared to last year, and it has become one of the top 30 universities in the world. Compared with last year, the University of Melbourne surpassed the University of Sydney to return to Australia's second place.
A total of 7 universities in Australia have entered the world's top 100
2. NSW official announcement: pick up international students within 6-8 weeks
Just this week, the New South Wales State Government issued an official statement to formally notify the latest developments in the pilot program for the entry of foreign students. Like the information previously disclosed, the NSW government plans to start in mid-2021 and begin 6-8 weeks later. 250 international students will enter the country and be quarantined in Sydney every two weeks. Once the implementation is successful, the number will gradually increase and the number of international students will be gradually increased. The entry quota does not occupy the quota of existing Australians returning to Australia, and is an additional commercial charter flight.
All the expenses will be borne by the school. In addition, the latest news is that medical professional related and near graduation or face-to-face lectures for courses will be given priority.
The pilot plan has been reported by the media before, but the NSW pilot plan was notified by the state government in the form of an official document, which can be said to be more feasible. And just after the government documents were released, the University of Sydney notified students in the form of documents and emails. The school and the NSW government have been actively cooperating on the pilot program. Once the federal government nodded its approval, it would directly contact students who met the requirements. All students who need face-to-face classes will be given priority to be invited to participate in the pilot program.
Combining the above information, it can be said that the NSW pilot program can be expected in the future. I also remind current students in NSW to check their student mailboxes at any time and prepare valid student visas in advance. Make adequate preparations for the upcoming entry trial.
3. TSU 2021S2 China Learning Center opens
Due to the epidemic, most international students have to be trapped in the country and cannot return to Australia. In order to help international students and support their studies in China, S2 will continue to open the China Study Center in 2021.
Currently, the University of Tasmania has three cooperative institutions in China: Shandong University of Science and Technology, Southwest University and Ocean University of China. The school will provide international students with on-site support for online learning, course guidance, English language support, discussion groups, online experience projects, and elective courses from partner institutions in China. In addition, the Overseas Study Center also provides two-person (female) and four-person (male) student apartments, so students in China can participate.
The China Learning Center is open to undergraduates and graduate students from the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the School of Business of the University of Tasmania. Registration is now open. The deadline for registration is June 30, 2021.
