Ben Sowter, Director of Research, QS, said: “With students becoming 
increasingly conscious of the competitiveness of the global graduate jobs 
market, and of the ever-increasing financial costs of their educational 
investment, it is crucial that independent data of this sort is available to 
them, to inform evidence-based decisions about their educational futures. With 
Australian institutions performing better at the top than British ones, and 
with a variety of universities in Latin America and Asia outperforming their 
overall rank, it is also clear that it is valuable to shine a unique light on 
outstanding employability performance – one that rewards institutions 
successfully fulfilling this critical aspect of their mission.”
