The University of Queensland (UQ) has jumped seven places to 43rd in the world in the QS World University Rankings for 2024.

Vice-Chancellor at UQ, Deborah Terry said the results placed the university in the top three per cent of the 1,500 universities ranked.

“Our achievement in these important global rankings is a testament to the impact of our teaching, research and innovation across a range of fields, to help solve some of the most pressing challenges facing the world,” Professor Terry said.

“UQ’s network of more than 430 international research partnerships includes the recently-announced collaboration with Emory University (Atlanta, United States) to accelerate vaccine discovery and development.”

She said the Global Bio-economy Alliance with the Technical University of Munich and Sao Paulo State University was another example of UQ’s globally-significant cooperation.

The QS World University Rankings measure a university’s performance across indicators including research and discovery, global engagement, learning experience, employability and sustainability.

“UQ consistently ranks in the world’s top 50 universities and this reflects what is an unwavering commitment to teaching excellence and delivering positive learning outcomes for our students,” Professor Terry said.

“We know UQ graduates are sought after by industry and business, and engagement with these sectors is critical to shape our programs, connect students to the workforce and equip them with skills that make them relevant now and into the future.”
