Curtin University in world’s top one percent of universities

Curtin University is again ranked in the world’s top one percent of universities and ninth in Australia, according to the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2022.

Released annually by the ShanghaiRanking Consultancy, ARWU ranks more than 1800 universities worldwide and publishes the top 1000 according to four research criteria: Quality of Education; Quality of Faculty; Research Output; and Per Capita Performance.

Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Harlene Hayne said it was pleasing to see Curtin’s strong research record recognised on the world stage.

“Recognition on this list illustrates not only the high esteem in which Curtin is held internationally, but that we are a university committed to high impact research that delivers real value for both industry and the community,” Professor Hayne said.

“This ranking achievement is just one measure of Curtin’s high-quality research, which is only made possible by the curiosity, drive and commitment of our dedicated and passionate researchers and students, who together strive to make a real difference to people around the globe.”

Earlier this year, Curtin was also ranked in the world’s top one percent of universities in the QS World University Rankings (QSWUR) 2023, achieving its highest ever result. Curtin is also proud to be one of only five universities in Australia and 20 in the world to achieve a QS Five Stars Plus rating, the highest available for a tertiary institution.
