Two Australian universities named amongst THE’s most international universities

WUR_logo_largePerth’s Curtin University and Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra have been named equal 10th on Times Higher Education (THE)’s Top 100 Most International Universities 2014/2015.

The THE list tables are the only international university performance tables to judge world-class universities across all four of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

Curtin University’s Vice Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry was thrilled with rankings saying “this demonstrated Curtin’s ability to attract students from around the globe and to collaborate with international colleagues.”

“Curtin has the third largest international student population of any Australian university with campuses across Western Australia, Sydney, Singapore and Sarawak,” said Professor Terry.

ANU’s Vice Chancellor Ian Young shared similar sentiments with Professor Terry, excited to see ANU moving up in the rankings.

“The ANU takes pride in its international reputation for research and education, so its pleasing to receive this recognition in the world stage,” said Mr Young.

The top universities rankings employ 13 specifically calibrated performance indicators to provide the most balanced comparisons available.
