Griffith Rises Into Top 40 Rankings for Young Universities

The latest rankings from the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings confirms Griffith University’s growing presence on the global stage as a high-quality education provider.

The World University rankings – formerly known as the Times Higher Education 150 Under 50 – show Griffith has risen from 48th place to 35th amongst 200 similarly-aged tertiary institutions in the 2016 Young University Rankings. These rankings celebrate universities less than 50 years old that have made a great impact in terms of teaching, research, citations, transfer of knowledge and other performance indicators.

In addition to Griffith’s impressive rise in the young university rankings, the release of the QS World University Subject Rankings shows Griffith placed in the top 100 institutions globally in 11 subject areas, with top ten positions in the growing fields of Hospitality and Leisure Management.

Since the first day of teaching in March 1975, when Griffith hosted just 451 students, the university has grown exponentially. Today more than 50,000 students are enrolled across five campuses in Southeast Queensland – as well as online.

Commenting on these favorable results, Vice Chancellor and President Ian O’Connor said they highlight the institutional commitment Griffith has to excellence in research and teaching.

“It is also the product of hard work by all our staff, students, alumni and partners which combine to produce remarkable outcomes,” Professor O’Connor said.
