Uni of Adelaide rises in prestigious Times Higher Ed rankings

Thursday, 22 September 2016

The University of Adelaide has risen in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) rankings, jumping seven spots to be 142nd in the world.

“We were already in the top 150 in these highly regarded rankings and are delighted to have improved our ranking this year,” said Professor Warren Bebbington, Vice-Chancellor and President.

“This helps consolidate our position in the top 1% of universities in the world, and is the first time we have ranked in the top 150 in all three significant international rankings.”

Earlier this month, the University jumped 30 places in the ARWU rankings to be placed 139th.

And in the QS World University rankings, we are ranked 125.

“It’s a great credit to the quality and depth of our research and teaching staff, and the focus and dedication they bring to their work every day,” said Professor Bebbington.

Professor Bebbington said that while rankings provided a good indication of an institution’s overall standing, they offered little insight for future students considering where to study.

“Rankings capture only part of a university’s story. I would always urge people to be cautious before using them on their own as consumer advice,” he said.
