Australia has emerged as the number one nation in the Times Higher Education analysis of the world’s top 100 universities under 50 years of age, with 16 top 100 institutions compared to 14 last year and one more than the UK, with which Australia tied in 2014.
UTS is in the 21st spot overall in a list that includes young institutions from 28 countries or regions.
“Australia is now the world’s number one nation when it comes to the new generation of world-class universities,” said Times Higher Education rankings editor Phil Baty.
“While its Group of Eight old guard continue to shine in the traditional World University Rankings, Australia also has a thriving community of young, dynamic universities that are making a global impact, too.
“Their diversity is also a great sign for a healthy future, with institutions founded in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s making the list. This is great news for the Australian sector.”
UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs said that while rankings were just one particular measure of performance, it was evident UTS had rapidly developed a global reputation for excellence in teaching and research.
Ranking results are a reflection on the hard work and dedication of staff and quality of students.
“To be ranked top in Australia is a pleasing achievement, especially as Australia is the leading represented country in the elite list, with 16 top 100 institutions,” Professor Brungs said.
“We should be very proud of the quality, impact and rapid progress of so many of the younger universities across Australia.
“While it’s always good to have rankings news like this, what is more important to us is that we keep innovating and improving the quality of education and educational experience we offer; growing the impact of our research and academics and seeing the tangible benefits our alumni deliver around the world.
“Our new, world-leading campus will provide a further boost to our innovative model of learning, research efforts and industry engagement to ensure that we continue to build our reputation for excellence and quality,” Professor Brungs said.
