The University of Adelaide has risen dramatically in the QS Rankings of world universities, jumping 16 places to 109th in the world.
“This tremendous lift in our rankings sees us knocking on the door of the world’s top 100,” said Professor Mike Brooks, Interim Vice-Chancellor.
“It reaffirms our place in the upper echelon of universities in the world, ranked as we are in the top 150 in all three of the major international rankings schemes.”
The University jumped 30 places in the most recent ARWU rankings to be placed 139th, and is currently 142nd in the world in the Times Higher Education rankings, amongst a total of around 17,000 universities.
“Our meteoric rise across the board in recent years is especially gratifying given the intense emerging competition from Asian institutions,” said Professor Brooks.
“Our progress is a result of outstanding teaching, leading edge research and innovation, and a commitment to tackling global challenges in collaboration with international partners.
“We are tremendously fortunate to have world-class research, teaching and support staff that bring dedication to their work every day,” said Professor Brooks.
