Open Day 2018


We are thrilled to announce that we have ranked Number One in Australia for Mathematics in the 2019 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).

The rankings also reveal that we are the only Australian university to feature in the Top 100 in the world for Mathematics.

This is the second year in a row that we have topped the country. We were also first each year from 2011 - 2015. In 2017, we placed second.  

Also for the second year in a row, we have ranked number two for Oceanography in Australia and in the Top 25 worldwide (in the 23rd spot). 

Ranking indicators employed by ARWU include the number of papers published, paper citations, international collaboration, papers published in top journals, and significant awards won by staff of an institution.

Our ARWU success builds on our track record of ranking excellence. For the past four years, US News Global Universities Rankings has placed us at number one in Australia for mathematics, as has the CWTS Leiden Rankings (ranked together with UNSW Computer Science). The 2019 NTU Ranking for mathematics also positioned us as first in the country.
