CQUni strides ahead in World Uni Rankings

We had some great news this week that CQUniversity has ranked within the top 600 universities in the world in the Times High Education Rankings. These rankings are the most esteemed university rankings in the world and it is truly amazing to see CQUniversity feature. What’s more the rankings this year have expanded their methodology to more comprehensively assess relevant data across a number of key performance indicators. 

For anyone outside the higher ed sector our ranking may not actually seem very remarkable but I must stress that it is. There are thousands of universities across the world (roughly around 20,000) so to make it in to the Top 600 is an incredible achievement. If you’re still not convinced, this ranking also means that CQUniversity is now ranked among the top three percent in the world.

What makes this achievement even more incredible is not quite three years ago, we weren’t even in the Top 3000 institutions worldwide.  The University has come such a long way in such a short space of time and I am so thrilled about this. Every person connected to CQUniversity should feel extremely proud of this ranking!

We have done a lot of work in the past few years to improve research, learning and teaching, as well as our services and student experience and I believe this hard work is really starting to pay off. We’re not stopping here though – we still have more to do and more to achieve. This is why it is so exciting to be a part of CQUniversity right now.

Everyone at CQUniversity is 100 percent committed to our strong to Great vision and this ranking proves what we already know – that CQUniversity is emerging as one of Australia's truly great universities.

Congratulations to all of the other Aussie Universities featured in the rankings this year– especially our Regional University Network (RUN) partners Southern Cross University (SCU) and the University of Southern Queensland (USQ).
