UniSA’s star rises as it becomes youngest Australian university in world’s top 250 institutionsSeptember 21 2017
The University of South Australia’s star continues to rise after leaping into the world’s top 250 institutions in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings released overnight.
The ranking now places UniSA in the top 10 universities in the country and the youngest Australian institution in the world’s top 250, continuing an upwards trajectory for the State’s largest university, already positioned in the world’s top 50 universities under 50 years of age.
UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd says UniSA’s jump into the 201-250 band reflects the commitment that UniSA staff have made to improve both research and teaching and to build a connected and outward looking university community.
“I’m also delighted to see that UniSA ranks in the top 100 for international staff and for our industry engagement,” Prof Lloyd says.
“As Australia’s University of Enterprise, these two areas, encompassing a global outlook and a deep engagement with real world issues and finding solutions for industry problems, are core to UniSA’s ‘DNA’,” Prof Lloyd says.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings list the top 1102 universities in the world, across 77 countries, representing five per cent of the world’s higher education institutions.
