At 28 years old and in an increasingly competitive field of young universities, the University of South Australia has maintained its strong position at number 26 in the Times Higher Education global ranking of Universities under 50 years old.
The 2019 results follow a rise of six places in 2018 and are in step with the University’s strong performance in the THE Impact Ranking in April this year, where it earned a position of 22 in the world for overall University Impact and top 10 globally for quality education.
Acting Vice Chancellor, Paul Beardsays UniSA continues to strive for improved outcomes in both research and teaching and to build the University’s reputation for enterprise and innovation.
“We are young, so these rankings are particularly important because they reflect our achievements in the company of other young universities and we are performing very well,” Beard says.
“In this year’s Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA)rankings 100 per cent of our assessed research was rated at or above world standard and in the inaugural Australian Research Council’s impact and engagement assessments, we hit number one in Australia on a combined metric for our impact, approach to impact and engagement with end users.
“It paints an accurate picture of our ambitions for UniSA, which is to become a national and global leader in teaching and research and grow as a future-focused university that doesn’t stop striving for excellence.”
