The Hawke building University of South Australia Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd says he is pleased to see that UniSA has retained its place in the QS World’s Top 50 Universities Under 50 in what is an increasingly dynamic list.

The ranking was introduced in recent years by Quacquarelli Symonds to give a more equitable assessment of the growth of young universities.

Vice Chancellor David Lloyd says competition to stay in this elite group is increasing with a rise in the strength of young institutions from Asia and around the world.

“It is good to see Australia’s young universities are rating well, with eight universities making it into the group,” Prof Lloyd says.

“At just 23 years old, our aim is to consolidate and improve our standing.

“UniSA’s strategic action plan, Crossing the Horizon, will support stronger partnerships and relationships across our communities locally and globally, improving recognition of UniSA and stronger engagement with our researchers and graduates.”
