Griffith University has been ranked 41st in the world’s top 50 universities established within the past 50 years.

The QS Top 50 Under 50 ranking is based on the highest performing young institutions in the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings.

Vice Chancellor and President of Griffith University, Professor Ian O’Connor, welcomed the result which is a 12 place rise on last year.

“I am delighted that Griffith has achieved this very good ranking of 41st in the world, but it is not completely unexpected given our solid rise on the overall QS rankings in 2013 in which the University was ranked 341st,” Professor O’Connor said.

“It is recognition of Griffith’s ongoing commitment to world-leading research and providing a quality learning experience for our students, leading to valued career outcomes.”

Griffith University rated five stars based on achievements in these eight categories; research, employability, teaching, facilities, internationalisation, innovation, specialist criteria, and access.

The influence of Griffith’s research is further demonstrated by our inclusion in the global top 400 universities on both the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and the CWTS Leiden Rankings; one of only two universities in Queensland to achieve this distinction. Strong research credentials also place Griffith among the world’s top 200 institutions for Social Sciences on the ARWU and Leiden rankings and amongst Australia’s top 15 universities, according to the Nature Publishing Index for the Asia-Pacific region.

Nine Australian universities were included in the Top 50 Under 50 world rankings. The complete listing can be found at QS Top 50 Under 50 2013/14
