The University of Queensland continues to hold its position in global ranking scales, reinforcing its status as a Top 100 university internationally.

Recently, Times Higher Education World University Ranking, released October 1st, placed UQ 60th out of 800 universities throughout the world - five spots higher than the University’s 2014 result.

Also released in October, the US News Best Global Universities League Table ranked UQ 52nd while  QS World University Rankings, released in September ranked UQ 46th.

In August, The University of Queensland leapt ahead on the Academic Ranking of World Universities, placing 77th globally, up from 85th in 2014. The same list ranked UQ second in Australia, behind only The University of Melbourne.

The University also ranked 56th in the Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities and topped the Australian Financial Review BOSS MBA survey for the second consecutive time.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj AC congratulated and thanked the UQ community, whose many and diverse inputs had contributed to the results.

“It is wonderful for our students to know that of the more than 10,000 universities in the world, their university was ranked in the top 50 and top 100 in key ranking scales,” Professor Høj said.

“This significantly boosts the recognition of UQ degrees in the global marketplace.

“This is an exceptionally good result for UQ and for Australia, especially in light of the vigorous competition from universities in countries such as China that benefit from massive and strategic investments in higher education and research.”
