Western Sydney University continues to rise in world rankings
Western Sydney University has strengthened its position in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, rising to 251st in the world and firmly cementing its position within the top two per cent of universities worldwide.
The World University Rankings for 2020-2021 ranked more than 1,500 universities across 93 countries, measuring institutions across five core categories of teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
This year’s results saw Western Sydney University improve its scores across all the categories, particularly for academic citations, reflecting the University’s high-quality research.
Vice-Chancellor and President of Western Sydney University, Professor Barney Glover AO, says the latest results means the University is now ranked 18th in Australia and knocking on the door of the top 250 universities in the world.
“This rankings result is an impressive achievement, and testament to our commitment to being a truly world-class university that is recognised globally for our research strengths, our engagement with partners, and our innovative approach to teaching,” said Professor Glover.
“This follows other outstanding rankings results earlier this year, in which we were ranked 3rd in the world overall in the Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings.
“I congratulate everyone across the University community on their hard work and contribution to our latest world rankings success.”
