2023 X University Ranking New


What are the most popular Australian Universities on X (formerly Twitter)? uniRank answers this question by publishing the 2023 X University Ranking of all Australian higher-education institutions on X meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Australian higher education-related organization in each country
  • offering at least three-year bachelor's degrees or postgraduate master's or doctoral degrees

The aim of the uniRank X University Ranking is to offer an approximate popularity index for each Australian university on the X social media platform, based on the total number of followers. Read also our article about the importance of Social Media for Universities and prospective students.
