The prestigious annual review has ranked Griffith in the top 400 tertiary institutions globally, with an overall position of 329.
In two discipline areas Griffith is ranked well within the top 200 universities in the world:

  • In Social Sciences and Management, Griffith is now ranked 129 rising 14 places from last year.
  • For Arts and Humanities, Griffith is now ranked 183 moving up from its position of 212 in 2014.

Each year the QS World University rankings consider more than 3,000 universities around the world with the top 800 ranked according to six key performance indicators: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, research citations per paper, proportion of international faculty and proportion of international students.
Vice Chancellor and President of Griffith University, Professor Ian O’Connor, said the latest rankings reflect Griffith’s growing influence as a leading institution of research and teaching excellence.
“This is a pleasing result which consolidates our strong position as a foremost university not only in the Asia Pacific region but also on the world stage,” Professor O’Connor said.
“I am particularly proud that in Social Sciences and Management we are now among the best 150 universities in the world.”
This latest recognition follows the release in August of the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities in which Griffith improved its international standing and consolidated its position as one of only two South-East Queensland universities ranked in the global top 400.
