Higher Education in Oceania


Which universities are the most common in each Oceanian country? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing a list of Oceanian countries and rating higher-education institutions that fulfill the following Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

being chartered, certified, or approved by the required higher education-related institution in each Oceanian region, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education format.
The aim of Topuniversitieslist is to include a non-academic League Table of the top Universities in each Oceanian country focused on accurate, impartial, and non-influenceable site metrics generated by objective web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by universities. We also have a short description of higher education in Oceania at the bottom of the list.
