Western Sydney University on the rise
Announced today, Western Sydney University continues to make gains in the renowned international Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
Moving up three spots from the 2017 result, the University is now ranked number 22 in Australia. Excellent results in the areas of research, citations and industry income compared with other universities were largely responsible for Western Sydney University’s new spot within the top 400 universities in the world.
Vice-Chancellor and President of Western Sydney University, Professor Barney Glover, noted a renewed emphasis on research and outstanding industry collaborations had assisted in a steady rise in reputation for the University.
“We are pleased that the hard work and ground-breaking research the University takes pride in is getting the recognition it deserves. Investing in new technology-enabled high-rise campuses, invigorated curricula coupled with the implementation of decadal strategies will be reflected in continued rises in rankings domestically and internationally,” said Professor Glover.
Western Sydney University is ranked the number one Nursing School in Australia (by Centre for World University Rankings - CWUR), and in the Top 100 in the world (by QS World University Ranking). The University has been ranked within the top 50 courses in Australia for Ecology, while Education, Agricultural Science, Civil Engineering are listed in the top 75 domestically and Psychology in the top 150.
