Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Margaret Harding writes:
ANU has been ranked top in Australia in the QS World University rankings, improving our position by two places, putting us at 24 in the world.
This is a very pleasing result, and a testament to the high-quality research and teaching that defines our great institution.
The results are a cause for pride across the whole University community, and a direct endorsement of the work and commitment of all ANU staff.
The QS ranking by ‘faculty area’ placed ANU 13 in the world for Arts and Humanities, 16 for Social Sciences and Management, 20 in Natural Sciences, 44 in Life Sciences and Medicine and 50 for Engineering and Technology.
Taking academic reputation alone into account, QS ranks ANU 21 in the world.
The QS ranking is the second in as many months to chart the rise of ANU through international ranks. Last month ANU rose six places in the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
One of QS’s strengths is that it measures quality across a wide range of disciplines, including Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
It is also great to see seven other Australian universities in the top 100.
Thank you to everyone for your continued commitment to ANU.
