Australia is fast earning itself a reputation as being a university powerhouse.
This year it is the most-represented country on the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 Rankings for 2015, a list of the world’s 100 best universities under 50 years old.
It is the first time Australia has taken out the top position, with 16 Australian institutions making the top 100.
Last year Australia shared the top spot with the UK, which this year came in second among the 15 universities featured.
Australia is expected to continue to maintain a strong presence on the list for years to come, with the founding years of the listed universities spanning across the last five decades.
New South Wales and Victoria featured the most universities, closely followed by Western Australia. No universities in Tasmania or the ACT made the list.
Here are the best young Australian universities to make the cut.
