The THE ‘top 100 under 50’ rankings released today highlight the ‘new breed’ of universities making their mark on the international stage, with UniSA moving up 14 spots to 35th place, from 49th in 2014.

UniSA is Australia’s youngest university to feature in the THE top 50 under 50.

UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd says UniSA is proud of its position in this new generation of world-class universities. 

“As Australia’s University of Enterprise, we’re really pleased with our standing among the world’s best young universities,” Prof Lloyd says.

“As an institution which is just 24 years old, to be placed in such an advanced position is a great achievement.

“UniSA has been steadily increasing its global reach, connecting with industry and providing our graduates with an education that ensures they can hit the ground fully qualified and work ready.

“Our research activities have matured in both excellence and impact.

“Top all that off with a vibrant, can do, enterprising attitude and I’m confident that we will continue to shine on the world stage.”
