Deakin University has seen continuing success in world university rankings with Thursday’s release of the 2017 CWTS Leiden Rankings. Deakin is now ranked number 225 in the world, climbing 37 places from last year’s results.
Released annually, the CWTS Leiden Rankings looks at the scientific performance of more than 900 universities around the world, assessing the research impact these universities have and their research collaborations.
Deakin’s success reflects the University’s commitment to conducting world-class research that makes an impact to lives and well-being of communities in Australia and around the world. The University has continued to forge research partnerships around the globe and expand our research capacity through the development of new infrastructure and facilities.
Yesterday’s release is the latest in a long trend of successful gains for Deakin in international university rankings. Last year, Deakin’s rankings performance placed it for the first time in the top 2% of universities worldwide, and third in Australia for graduate employability. And last month saw the University experience excellent results in the 2017 QS Subject rankings: 24th in the world for Nursing, 28th for Education, and in the Top 1% for Accounting and Finance, Anthropology, Business and Management Studies, Communication and Media, Law, Philosophy, and Sociology.
Deakin has also recently been ranked number 1 in the world for Sports Science by the highly regarded ShanghaiRankings.
Deakin prides itself on being innovative and committed to preparing students for the careers and challenges of a globally-connected and digitally-enabled world. Rankings successes like today’s demonstrate that Deakin is being increasingly recognised for its efforts to engage and delight students.
