15 Aug 2018

The University of Queensland has placed fifth in the Asia Pacific and second in Australia in today’s 2018 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).

The University retained its 55th position globally in the prestigious rankings.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ’s consistent standing in the influential ranking was a strong endorsement of the quality and impact of the University’s research and teaching.

“The ARWU ranking considers the number of highly cited researchers and articles published in high-ranking journals, as well as alumni and staff awards,” Professor Høj said.

“From more than 10,000 universities in the world, only the top 500 are published in ARWU, so to come in at number 55 for the third successive year is a fantastic achievement.”
