Rising stars

30 April 2015

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

one-hundred-rankings-newThe Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 Rankings 2015 is a ranking of the top 100 universities under 50 years old.  As the blurb pus it, ” it provides a glimpse into the future, showcasing not those institutions with centuries of history, but the rising stars which show great potential.”  The ranking measures universities on research, citations, teaching, international outlook and industry outcome.

 In all,  16 Australian universities are listed, the largest national contingent, with University of Technology Sydney being the highest ranked. Swinburne University of Technology entered the ranking for the first time,  which Swinburne’s vice-chancellor Linda Kristjanson reflects its “dedication to producing outstanding research that is relevant, world changing and internationally recognised.” 

Kristjanson  also made the point to  Campus Morning Mail that “this should provide policy makers with confidence that Australia’s system of higher education is of world class. It should also cause us to continue to critically evaluate proposed changes, which would radically alter the policy and funding settings on which this success has been built.”
