Griffith University achieves best ever results in annual QS Subject rankings

Griffith University has been ranked among the top 100 universities worldwide in nine subject areas in the annual QS World University Subject Rankings.

This marks Griffith’s best ever across-the-board result, with the number of rankings up from five in 2015.

Vice Chancellor Professor Ian O’Connor attributed this outstanding result to a number of factors, including a high standard of research quality and the growth of the University.

“While 18 subjects at Griffith were listed in the published rankings (up from 15 in 2015), the University scored in 37 subject areas of the 42 ranked by QS confirming its status as one of Australia’s most comprehensive research and teaching universities,” Professor O’Connor said.

“Griffith’s growing regard as a university of influence is evidenced by improved scores on the annual QS academic and employer reputation surveys.

He went on to say that these rankings highlight Griffith’s proven results in subject areas.

“While reputation and quality are essential, an institution needs to have a substantial presence, both teaching and research, within a subject area to be ranked at all, and Griffith has that.” Professor O’Connor said

“As was the case with ERA (Excellence in Research Australia) 2015, research at Griffith is attracting improved citation rates both in the traditional citation disciplines and even in the peer review disciplines.”
