Australian and New Zealand universities amongst the finest in the world

14 October 2013

Our partner institutions in Australia and New Zealand rank highly according to THE world university rankings.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-2014 are the only global university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The top universities rankings employ 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments. 

Study Group's Australian and New Zealand partner institutions rank highly in both world rankings for global institutions and in top 100 under 50 years old. The University of Sydney is ranked at 72, while the University of Western Australia is up 22 places at 168. In New Zealand, the University of Auckland was listed at 164.
