Out of a total of 230 tertiary institutions worldwide, Australia’s RMIT comes in second on the list of top universities for blockchain, according to CoinDesk.

The number one-ranked university for blockchain was the National University of Singapore, which offers multiple blockchain research centres, blockchain-themed conferences, blockchain clubs, and company partnerships, also offering a master’s program in digital financial technology. Coming in third was the University of California, Berkeley in the US.

Three Aussie Unis in the Top 20

Impressively, two other Australian institutions made the top 20 list: the University of New South Wales (UNSW) ranked 13th, and the University of Sydney came in at number 20.

Support for blockchain in Australia has been heavily championed by cryptocurrency enthusiast and NSW politician Senator Andrew Bragg, who has called for the government to attract fintech investors to Australia.

In February this year, Crypto News reported on how Blockchain Australia and RMIT had been calling for government support for blockchain. Accordingly, government grants have been a vital part in helping RMIT secure the No. 2 spot for Australia’s RMIT University as one of the best universities to study blockchain in the world.
