9 June 2021: The University of Canberra remains in the top two per cent of universities in the world, according to the 2022 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings released today.
The University has risen 20 places to rank 436 worldwide. The 2022 QS World University Rankings measured the outcomes of 1,300 universities globally.
Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Paddy Nixon said the University’s continued success is a testament to the effort and commitment of the academics, researchers and faculty teams across the University.
“I am a firm believer that rankings do not define our University’s success, rather they are a great barometer for how the institution is tracking internationally against our peers,” Professor Nixon said.
“The University’s success is driven by the passion of our community, our dedicated staff and wonderful students who continue to demonstrate resilience and innovation.”
Measures that contributed to the University’s improved score were citations per faculty (ranked 289); number of international academic staff (ranked 80); and number of international academic students (ranked 139).
“Our researchers in all the University’s faculties are producing work that is not only impactful within the local context of Canberra but is recognised globally,” Professor Nixon said.
“These results are fitting given our ongoing efforts to building our research capacity, building on our excellence in teaching and delivering on a distinct student experience.”
