UWA a star per­former

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

THE Uni­ver­sity of WA is the star turn among Aus­tralian in­sti­tu­tions in the 2018 QS World Uni­ver­sity Rank­ings, be­ing ranked at 93 in the world’s top 100 uni­ver­si­ties.

The QS World Uni­ver­sity Rank­ings grade uni­ver­si­ties world­wide based on per­for­mance, in­clud­ing aca­demic and em­ployer rep­u­ta­tion, re­search im­pact and in­ter­na­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

UWA re­mains in the top 1 per cent of 26,000 uni­ver­si­ties world­wide and has climbed nine places to 93, be­ing recog­nised for its at­trac­tive­ness as a global uni­ver­sity to in­ter­na­tional staff and stu­dents.

UWA vice-chan­cel­lor Pro­fes­sor Dawn Fresh­wa­ter paid trib­ute to the hard work of staff, stu­dents and re­searchers.

“All West Aus­tralians can take pride in this achieve­ment and share in the ex­cite­ment that their uni­ver­sity is re­garded as one of the best in the world,” Prof Fresh­wa­ter said.

“This is tes­ta­ment that we are mak­ing a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence by ed­u­cat­ing the minds of the fu­ture, us­ing re­search and in­no­va­tion to help solve the prob­lems the world faces and sup­port­ing our com­mu­ni­ties through arts, cul­ture and en­gage­ment.”

UWA re­cently launched an in­ter­na­tional re­cruit­ment cam­paign to at­tract 50 world-class aca­demic staff to the uni­ver­sity.
