Deakin celebrates rise in rankings

Deakin continues to rise among the world’s universities, with the latest prestigious QS World University Rankings placing us at number 271 in the world after entering the top 300 two years ago.

Released on 19 June 2019, this ranking places Deakin in the top 1.1 per cent of universities in the world.

It also cements Deakin in the top two per cent of universities in each of the three major global rankings, the other two being the ARWU and Times Higher Education (THE).

Deakin Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander AO congratulated the Deakin community on its achievement.

“Deakin is committed to supporting the communities we serve through providing the best teaching and research possible, and today’s rankings show that if you value staff and build a clear and comprehensive strategy towards your goals, the results follow,” Professor den Hollander said.

“The QS rankings have further enhanced Deakin’s reputation as focussed on excellence, providing the jobs of the future and supporting our students to provide the best experience possible.”
