Curtin University has achieved its highest-ever rank in the prestigious QS World University Rankings (QSWUR) released today, climbing nine places to 174th in the world and 13th in Australia.

In the 21st edition of the QSWUR, Curtin climbed 216 places in the sustainability measure, 23 places in the international research network category and five in academic reputation. Curtin is also now ranked third in Australia for international faculty, proving its reputation as a drawcard for the world’s best teachers and scholars.

Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Harlene Hayne said this major achievement reflects the University’s focus on its strategic pillars of People, Planet and Partnership.

“It takes a collective effort to achieve such outstanding results and they are testament to the dedication of our industry partners, researchers and staff whose unwavering commitment has been instrumental in Curtin’s continued success,” Professor Hayne said.

“I am particularly proud of our huge leap forward in our sustainability score, which shows Curtin’s strategic commitment to social responsibility initiatives and operations that support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“In the past seven years Curtin has climbed a remarkable 130 places globally on the QSWUR, cementing its leading position on the world stage.”
