THE Ranking of Australian universities

Where does your university rank? Check now

The Times Education Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings is an annual publication of university rankings by the Times Higher Education magazine. It is one of the three most popular rankings in the world along with QS World Ranking and Academic Ranking of World Universities. . THE Rankings this year have evaluated 1,600+ universities from 99 countries and territories. 

The influencers under the THE ranking include teaching (30%), research (30%), citation (30%), industry connections (2.5%), and international outlook (7.5%). This year, Pricewaterhouse Coopers (also known as PwC), a multinational professional services firm has audited the ranking calculation, making THE the only ranking system to be subjected to independent scrutiny. 

This year, 30 Australian universities have sustained or improved their rankings vs last year’s rankings. Where most Group of Eight (GO8) universities have improved on their rankings vs last year, six Australian universities have made it to the top 100 in the world. While 30 out of the total 37 Australian universities are now counted in the top 500, all 37 hold a proud place in the top 1,000. 

The next THE World University Ranking is expected to come out in September 2022.
