The University of Queensland has moved higher in the influential QS World University Rankings, coming in at 47th globally, placing it well inside the top one per cent of the world’s 26,000 universities.

UQ’s placing in the annual QS ranking announced today follows the University’s impressive performance in the prestigious Leiden ranking last month and a “massive result” in Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project funding announced last week.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ had continued to excel this week, securing $22.6 million in ARC funding for 17 projects on Monday – with funding for more research projects than any other university nationally.

“UQ sits comfortably within the world’s top 50 universities across a number of measures,” Professor Høj said.

“This latest QS result is an extremely gratifying endorsement of our efforts to provide our students with a world-class education in a global top-tier research university.

“Every UQ staff member has contributed in some way to this result, and I congratulate them all for their efforts.

“It’s no small achievement to be placed within the world’s best 50 universities,” Professor Høj said.

The QS ranking considers more than 4000 universities and evaluates 980 of them in detail.

For the latest QS report – released today – the London-based Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd (QS) analysed 75 million citations encompassing more than 12 million papers, and 115,000 survey responses from employers and academics.

The QS institution report on UQ states that its performance against about 26,000 universities globally places it in the top one per cent of universities in the world, and at fourth in Australia.

UQ has featured strongly in the QS ranking over the past five years.

 

The University of Queensland has moved higher in the influential QS World University Rankings, coming in at 47th globally, placing us well inside the top one per cent of the world's 26,000 universities. We're proud of our achievement, but it didn't happen by chance. As a global top-tier research university, we are committed to providing our students with a world-class education.

Here are just some of the reasons why UQ stands out on the world stage:

  • Our research is changing the world. In 2017, UQ was awarded $22.6 million in research funding by the Australian Government. This acknowledges the University's consistently high-calibre contributions in all areas of knowledge creation. In the past fifteen years, UQ researchers and academics have found a vaccine for cervical cancer, pioneered rocket technology and made discoveries that may remedy food shortages for a growing global population (to name just a few).​ ​​​ ​ ​ ​
  • We look after our international students. Choosing to fly across the world-leaving your family, friends and familiar spaces to attend university in a different country-is not the easiest decision. We understand that, and we work really, really hard to make sure our students know they have made the right decision. We provide them with Englishassistance, help them find accommodationmake friends and cope with learning. We also have international student advisors for any questions or worries they might have. ​​​​ ​ ​ ​​​ ​​
  • ​​ We graduate incredible people. When our students graduate they join an alumni body that includes a Nobel Prize winner, Oscar winners, a Governor General, CEOs, politicians, news anchors, judges, teachers, researchers, celebrity chefs, award winning journalists, activists, scientists, authors, Google employees and film makers. A degree from a top fifty university can take you to amazing places. Our highly awarded careers service team work with students to help find them careers that enable them to make fulfilling change in their own lives and the lives of others.
