World uni rankings put Uni of Adelaide at 62

Thursday, 8 November 2007

The University of Adelaide has been listed among the world's best universities, at number 62 in the THES-QS World University Rankings published on 8 November in the UK.

The THES-QS World University Rankings, previously known as The Times Higher World University Rankings, is one of the best-regarded world university rankings.

Acting Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Fred McDougall said: "This reaffirms the University of Adelaide's excellence and the global impact of our research and our graduates. Moving up to number 62 is good news and will, of course, be a source of celebration for the University and its stakeholders, but the most important thing to remember is that we have consistently been listed among the world's top universities."

The THES-QS World University Rankings are based on data gathered in six categories: peer review, recruiter (employers) review, international staff ratio, international students ratio, student-staff ratios and research citations.

The University of Adelaide has moved up 43 places in 2007 from 105 in 2006. This rise was reflected in a rise in the University's ranking earlier this year in the other key international ranking of universities around the world, the Shanghai Jiao Tong University's `Academic Ranking of World Universities' into the top 200.
