UOW ranked in the top 25 emerging universities in the world

Tuesday, 18 June, 2013

The University of Wollongong (UOW) has been ranked amongst the top 25 young universities in the world under the QS University Rankings system.

UOW was placed in 24th position in the 2013 QS Top 50 under 50, which ranks the best universities across the globe under the age of 50.

UOW Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Wellings hailed the ranking, which has improved by six places since last year, moving the university into the top 25. Professor Wellings said UOW already had an enviable record of achievement reflected in its position in the top 2 per cent of universities worldwide.

This ranking is also a testament to the quality of education offered by the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD), which bases its degree programs on the equivalent Australian curriculum.

UOWD was established by UOW twenty years ago and the programs delivered at the Dubai campus reflect the academic standards of the Australian institution. All degrees offered by UOWD are quality assured by UOW, which is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the national regulator of the higher education sector in Australia, and UOWD graduates have the option to exchange their degree for a UOW testamur after successfully completing a program of study in Dubai.

Professor Wellings concluded, “This is an important indicator that UOW is moving in the right direction. We have been judged to be performing very well in the face of strong global competition from new universities, particularly in China, Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore.”
