The University of Adelaide has risen in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings to be 134th in the world.
“This is an outstanding result for the University of Adelaide, at a time when some Australian universities dropped in the world rankings amidst greater international competition,” said Professor Mike Brooks, Interim Vice-Chancellor.
“This reaffirms our place in the upper echelons of universities in the world, and confirms that we are the best university in South Australia.
“Earlier this year, we jumped 16 places to be 109th in the QS Rankings of world universities, and in the most recent ARWU rankings we were placed 139th.
“We are now in the top 140 in all three of the major international rankings schemes.”
“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.
