Examining the average scores across the top 5 Australian institutions reveals that in comparison with the previous year, industry income, teaching, and international outlook have all improved in score. There was a slight decline in research and citations.
Overall, Australian institutions performed well in international outlook, representing to some extent dependence on international students. As the data relates to pre-COVID times, the impact of the pandemic is yet to be fully felt. Once this data is incorporated it will be interesting to see how Australia performs, especially in the international outlook pillar.
