UNSW students recognised as being the most employable in Australia

UNSW Sydney has been recognised for the employability of its students in the Top100 Future Leaders Competition 2021 for the second year in a row, with a record-breaking 37 students named as most employable students. It’s the highest number of students to be selected from one institution since the inception of the awards in 2014.

The Top100 Future Leaders Competition, jointly hosted by GradConnection and The Australian Financial Review, aims to identify the top emerging talent from Australia’s university students. Students took part in a highly competitive process, including psychometric testing, video interviews and participation in an assessment event with top employers.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Professor Merlin Crossley was thrilled with the results and congratulated the UNSW students who made the list.

“It’s wonderful to see so many of our top students recognised ... UNSW values and continues to promote industry engagement and work-integrated learning opportunities. We are proud to offer students many opportunities to undertake programs that further develop their skills and work experience.

“It’s an honour for UNSW to be recognised as the university with the most employable students for two consecutive years. This follows UNSW being recognised for having post-graduate students receiving the highest starting salaries in Australia, and our high employment rates for both post-graduate and undergraduate students in the recent graduate outcomes surveys."

Two UNSW Business School students in the Top 100 were also category winners for highly competitive employer awards, including Bachelor of Information Systems (Hons) student Jessica Lawson who won the Coles IT Top100 Future Leader Award, and Bachelor of Commerce/Law student Alexandra Zoras who won the Ashurst Law Top100 Future Leader Award.

The win builds on UNSW’s record in last year’s awards, which saw 27 students named as Most Employable Students.
