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.
