University enters top 100 in QS world-wide rankings
The University of Adelaide continues to be recognised as one of the world’s top universities, with the release of the 2024 QS World University Rankings.
The University of Adelaide has been ranked 89 in the world, placed repeatedly and firmly in the top 1 per cent of universities globally, and again the highest ranked South Australian university. This year the University has moved up 20 places from its position at 109 last year.
“The University of Adelaide’s position at 89 in the 2024 QS World University Rankings highlights its consistent, positive rankings trajectory and is a significant milestone for our institution,” said Professor Peter Høj AC, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Adelaide.
“The quality and scope of our teaching and research endeavour is being consistently recognised externally in the improvements in our position in rankings, and by our peers, as measured by reputation and citations, and granting bodies and partners through research and industry income.
“We are focussed on creating a stronger future for South Australia. This result, combined with the improvement of other local universities, should give South Australians confidence that we can secure a top 100 university of significant scale for the long term.”
The significant step up in the QS rankings in part reflects a change to the methodology in which they are calculated. The 2024 QS ranking result comes after the University moved into the top 100 in Times Higher Education ranking last year.
By every measure, the University of Adelaide – a member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight research-intensive universities – stands tall among the world’s leading institutions of learning and innovation.
“We are focussed on creating a stronger future for South Australia. This result, combined with the improvement of other local universities, should give South Australians confidence that we can secure a top 100 university of significant scale for the long term.”Professor Peter Høj AC, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Adelaide.
