The Jack Ma Foundation will give US$20 million (AU$26.4 million) to fund a first-of-its-kind scholarship program at UON. Marking the largest philanthropic commitment in UON's history, the new scholarship program pays tribute to Mr Ma's close personal connection to Newcastle.

The Ma & Morley Scholarship Program will have a transformational impact on the lives of students and shape the next generation of leaders. Unique to the Australian higher education sector, the Program will help establish an enduring community of scholars and provide them with a comprehensive engagement and enrichment program while at university and develop key networks and friendships, as well as experience important practical training to equip them for leadership in the global environment.

The success of Australia's universities in the global employability rankings is based in large part on their industry partnership programs, Ben Sowter, head of research at QS said.

"The 2017 instalment of this ranking illustrates that universities with a heavy STEM focus are generally among the most successful in nurturing student employability," he said.

"This ranking indicates that efforts made by Australian universities to establish themselves as industry-friendly knowledge hubs are paying dividends for their students."SydUni QS3

4. 2016/17QS World University Ranking

QS World University Rankings is an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). Previously known as THE-QS World University Rankings, the publisher had collaborated with Times Higher Education magazine (THE) to publish its international league tables from 2004 to 2009 before both started to announce their own versions. QS then chose to still use the pre-existing methodology while THE adopted a new one.

It is the only international ranking to have received International Ranking Expert Group (IREG) approval, and is viewed as one of the most widely read of its kind, along with Academic Ranking of World Universities and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Overall 6 of the Australia Group of Eight Universities are ranked Top 100. Australian National University remains the Australian top spot and is ranked 22 worldwide.
