The ranking, which measures the world’s best universities under 50 years of age, positions Curtin University at 20th in the world, an improvement on last year’s results.

Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said Curtin continues to establish itself as a leading young university on the world stage.

“With campuses in Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai and Mauritius, as well as Western Australia, Curtin is a truly global university and I am delighted the University continues to receive global recognition in prestigious world rankings,” Professor Terry said.

“This latest result ranks Curtin among the top 20 young universities in the world and as Australia’s fourth-best young university, continuing the University’s upward trajectory on last year’s results.”

Professor Terry congratulated staff and students for their commitment to excellence in learning and research.

“Even though Curtin is a young university by global standards, the University continues to prove itself on the world stage by rising in international rankings and this result is a credit to both staff and students,” Professor Terry said.
