UQ rises in world university rankings

As I have a degree from there,  I rather like this report.  QS is one of several university rating systems.  It is a private organization that was founded by Nunzio Quacquarelli in 1990 to provide information and advice to students looking to study abroad.  It has become widely read.  The Leiden rankings are the most objective so it is pleasing that they rate UQ even more  highly than QS does

The University of Queensland has jumped seven places to be ranked 43 in the world in the QS World University Rankings for 2024. 

UQ Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said the results place the University in the top three per cent of the 1,500 universities ranked.

“Our achievement in these important global rankings is a testament to the impact of our teaching, research and innovation across a range of fields, to help solve some of the most pressing challenges facing the world,” Professor Terry said.

“UQ’s network of more than 430 international research partnerships, includes the recently announced collaboration with Emory University to accelerate vaccine discovery and development.

"The Global Bioeconomy Alliance with the Technical University of Munich and Sao Paulo State University is another great example of our globally significant cooperation.”

The QS World University Rankings for 2024 measure a university’s performance across indicators including Research and Discovery, Global Engagement, Learning Experience, Employability and Sustainability.

“UQ consistently ranks in the world’s top 50 universities and this reflects what is an unwavering commitment to teaching excellence and delivering positive learning outcomes for our students,” Professor Terry said.

“We know UQ graduates are sought after by industry and business, and engagement with these sectors is critical to shape our programs, connect students to the workforce and equip them with skills that make them relevant now and into the future.”

In the 2023 Nature Index based on research outputs in prestigious journals in the previous year, UQ was second in Australia.

In the CWTS Leiden Ranking 2023, UQ was ranked 35 in the world and third in Australia overall, and was the top rated university in Australia in the field of Life and Earth Sciences and sixth in the world.

The Leiden ranking measures the scientific performance of more than 1,400 universities worldwide.
