Griffith University is the only Queensland university to be ranked on all major university rankings; in the top 400 globally and in the top 50 world universities under the age of 50.
The latest Times Higher Education 150 Under 50 Rankings has placed Griffith at 48, a climb of 34 places from last year’s position of 82.
This impressive rise follows last month’s QS Subject Rankings in which Griffith placed in the top 100 institutions worldwide in nine subject areas with Griffith Nursing ranked 29 in the world. Griffith scored in 37 subject areas – confirming its status as one of Australia’s most comprehensive research and teaching universities.
Vice Chancellor and President of Griffith University, Professor Ian O’Connor said the latest ranking provided further recognition of Griffith’s position as one of Australia’s leading universities.
“This is confirmation of Griffith’s growing influence as a leading institution of research and teaching excellence,” Professor O’Connor said.
“Griffith is now in the top 50 in both the Times Higher Education and QS (37) Top 50 Under 50, one of two Queensland universities to achieve this distinction.”
“In addition, the University is now in the top 400 overall on all major world rankings.”
In January, Griffith was placed 102 in a list of 800 of the world’s most international universities in the Times Higher Education rankings and second in Queensland.
In October 2015 it was named among the world’s top 300 universities in the Times Higher Education World Rankings for 2015-2016. A total of 13 performance indicators were considered for the Times HE rankings including research, citations, teaching, international outlook and industry engagement.
 The three major world rankings are the Academic Ranking of World Universities, QS World University Rankings and Times HE World University Rankings.
