Who went up and who went down? Who's the new 'it' university? Of course, as always, keep in mind that rankings are usually influenced by many factors other than the quality of their undergraduate programs. It's not necessarily an accurate indicator of which university is best for you, but just for fun, we all know we have that curious desire to know who's best. After all, rankings can be an indicator of a university's reputation and performance.
If you haven't seen our previous year's one, have a look here. Here are the new rankings for 2017/2018:
|University of Sydney||46||60||82||45|
|University of New South Wales||49||78||101+||80|
|University of Technology, Sydney||193||251+||301+||294|
|University of Wollongong||218||251+||301+||313|

|Australian Catholic University||701+||601+||-||-|
|University of New England||701+||-||-||691|
University of Notre Dame has no ranks published by these organisations.
Just for a little more spice and those that are extra curious, here is also a list of the average salaries of graduates from each university. However, they are even less of an accurate indicator of the quality of education at each institution. Many variables such as the ability and backgrounds of individual students, types of degrees offered, and local job market conditions can affect the graduate salary level of each university.

|University of New South Wales||54,167|
|University of Notre Dame||53,546|
|University of Sydney||53,524|
|University of Wollongong||52,610|
|University of New England||49,436|
|Australian Catholic University||48,985|
|University of Newcastle||48,814|
|Western Sydney University||47,525|
|University of Technology, Sydney||46,634|
