Aussie University tops world rankings

06 May 2015 by News Desk

education01Australia’s National University (ANU) has been voted top university in the latest QS global subject rankings.

ANU has been rated in the top 10 in the world in four subjects, more than any other Australian university, in the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015. ANU was rated seventh in the world for both agriculture and forestry, and for politics and international studies. ANU was rated ninth for history and 10th for Development Studies. A further 10 ANU subjects were rated in the top 25 in the world, including earth and marine sciences, which rated 12th.

“Rankings can be an inexact science and ratings can fluctuate, but the latest global subject rankings show ANU continues to lead the way for Australian university education and research,” said Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Young AO. “The outstanding results are a testament to the world-class academics and researchers at ANU, and the high quality of our dedicated students.”

The QS World University Rankings examined 36 disciplines at almost 900 universities around the world. They considered the opinion of more than 85,000 academics and analysed 17.3 million research papers.

Nationally, ANU topped the Australian rankings in nine subjects, including earth and marine sciences, modern languages, philosophy and sociology.
