List of Australian Universities

The mega list of Australian universities has lists by size (student numbers), by state and by tuition fees.

Mega List of Australian Universities

Lists of Australian universities by location (state and city), size (student numbers), tuition fees, online student numbers and course ratings.This is more than just a list of Australian universities. It is a mega list - a set of five detailed lists with facts and statistics about Australia's universities.

List 1 - Australian universities by state and city

The first list groups universities by state and territory. For each university, the base city and number of university-level students in 2012 are also detailed.

For presentation purposes, just the main state and city for each university are shown. Many of Australia's universities actually cross city and state borders (where there are satellite campuses or the university was formed by merging distant institutions).

List 2 - Universities by size / student numbers

Australian universities are also listed in order of size (by the total number of students). The list details the number of students who physically attend classes (including multi-mode courses) and the numbers and percentages of international students.

The figures were extracted from the Australian Government's higher education database in 2014.

List 3 - By tuition fees for international students

List of Australian universities by tuition fees for international students.Another list shows annual tuition fees for international students.

Using fees charged in 2014, universities are ranked from the cheapest to the most expensive. All figures were supplied by University Reviews Australia.

List 4 - Australian universities by distance education numbers

List of universities buy the number of students studying online (distance education courses).To show Australia's biggest online course providers, universities are listed by the number (and percentage) of students who study by distance education.

Distance learners are "external students", as distinct from on-campus students or multi-model students (who study by a combination of physical and online classes). See Online Study Australia for more information about online universities.

List 5 - Australian universities by course satisfaction ratings

List of universities by student ratings.The last list ranks Australian universities by course satisfaction ratings (by how happy students report to be with their course).

The ratings are from the Australian Graduate Survey. The Survey asks hundreds of thousands of recent graduates to rate their overall satisfaction with the course they recently completed. The lists shows the gross percentage of positive (satisfied) responses for the 2011 and 2012 surveys. But slightly more detailed information was used for the rankings.

Other lists

There are more lists on AU than just the mega list. Others include lists of universities by ranking, universities by ATAR cut-off scores and universities for international students.

There are also clickable lists on other websites that linked to detailed university info. We recommend the University Reviews Australia list and the All Universities list.
