Deakin has continued its 2015 rankings success with the announcement Tuesday of the QS Top 50 Universities Under 50. Deakin is now ranked number 36 in the world among young universities, jumping 14 places from the 2014 list.
Released annually, the QS 50 Under 50 rankings recognise the highest-performing young institutions within the QS World University Rankings, in which Deakin is currently placed at number 324 in the world.
The achievement demonstrates Deakin’s commitment to being a dynamic and innovative education institution, providing world-class research, state-of-the-art facilities and a diverse teaching environment for its students.
This latest 50 Under 50 list was announced in Melbourne at the inaugural QS Young Universities Forum. The Forum, hosted and sponsored by Deakin, was a platform for discussion around how young universities can pursue success in the globe higher education sector.
Speakers and delegates from around the world gathered to celebrate young universities and spoke of how they can improve student employability and employer perception and create opportunities and strategies for approaching international rankings.
Deakin’s latest success in the international rankings follows the University’s rapid climb in the latest Academic Rankings of World Universities (ARWU), where the University moved up a full tier compared to the previous year. Deakin also climbed the Times Higher Education World University Rankings list of the world’s Top 100 universities under 50 years of age where Deakin broke into the top 50 for the first time.
