An American university has been chosen as the best to learn in Australia, according to a survey by university outlets.
Key points:In the survey, American university campuses are ranked according to their impact on the global economyThe survey found that American universities have more graduates per student than other countriesThe survey was commissioned by the International Monetary Fund, and was funded by American universitiesThe study looked at a variety of factors including the size of the university, how much it has to offer, the international quality of its students, the impact of the global financial crisis, and the size and location of the student population.
“There is an unquestioned belief among Australian universities that they have the best students in the world and this belief is supported by their international reputation and by their high academic performance,” the study’s authors, Dr Michael Binder and Dr Robert Branscombe, said.
“The United States is the only country where this belief continues to be upheld.”
In other countries the belief that a university can do well abroad is often seen as evidence of an over-reliance on international learning and a lack of confidence in American institutions,” they said.
Dr Binder said American universities were among the most international in the developed world, but that there were a number of factors that had an influence on the results.”
This means that there is a greater need for more international students at Australian universities.””
The number of students studying abroad has increased dramatically and in some cases dramatically.”
This means that there is a greater need for more international students at Australian universities.
“The survey also found that Australian universities were more globally competitive than their international peers.
It found that universities in Western Australia had the best global rankings, while those in Victoria were ranked as having the worst.
In contrast, in Western Canada, the only region where American universities fared better, there were no international universities.”
It is the global competitiveness of Australian universities which is more likely to have a positive effect on Australian university students,” Dr Binder told news.com.au.”
International students tend to be drawn to the universities that have higher quality and are more global in their outlook.
“The study found Australian universities had more graduates on average per student, with the national average being 7.1, compared with 6.8 in the United States.
In the United Kingdom, the national rate of 7.2 per cent was higher than in Australia and higher than the national median rate of 5.4 per cent.
The survey’s authors also found American universities had a higher proportion of students who have a university degree than the United Nations.”
For every 1,000 students in America, there are 1,100 students in Canada,” Dr Branscomb said.
While the United Nation’s data shows a high proportion of graduates in the US, the study said American students in general were much more likely than their Australian counterparts to have graduated from university.”
We found that in the past 15 years, the percentage of American students with a university diploma has increased from 11 per cent in 1995 to 21 per cent today,” Dr Prakash said.
