QS ranks RMIT equal 123 in the world, 10 in Australia

RMIT University continues to make solid gains in the latest QS World University Rankings, one of the most influential rankings systems in the world.

This year RMIT jumped 17 places to secure equal 123 globally, and one place to rank 10 in Australia. The University’s improved standing is recognition of the high calibre of its educators and teaching and learning programs as judged by the international academic community, as well as growth in the quality of its research.

Over the past 5 years RMIT has continued to go from strength to strength, advancing 115 places, up from 238 in the world.  

RMIT Vice-Chancellor Professor Alec Cameron said, “This recognition of RMIT’s standing among our peers at an international level is a direct reflection of our commitment to education that changes lives and research that generates positive impact in complex times.”  

The vision of RMIT’s Knowledge with Action strategy is to be a leading university of impact across the Asia Pacific. With a strong and longstanding presence across Asia, including its major campus in Vietnam and partnerships with many reputable institutions, RMIT was ranked 36 out of 446 institutions operating in the region.  

“While we’re proud of this result, there remains much to do. We will continue to contribute our expertise and prepare our students to do the same, for the betterment of the communities we exist to serve, in Australia, across the region and around the world,” Cameron added.
