Swinburne University of Technology once again ranked in the world's top 400 universities!


World-ranked and located in the world’s most liveable city

I am very pleased to share the news that, for the third consecutive year, Swinburne has been ranked in the top 400 by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), confirming our place among the top 3% of universities in the world. I am also delighted to report that Swinburne has improved its international standing in the field of physics, moving into the top 75 for the very first time. Swinburne is now one of only five Australian universities ranked in the top 75 for any subject area. This is an incredible achievement.
The ARWU was established by the Center for World-Class Universities at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.  Of all the ratings, it is least dependent on subjective assessments and most dependent on research quality.
This exciting news comes in the same week that Melbourne was again named the most liveable city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit and the friendliest city in the world by Conde Nast Traveler.

Swinburne’s ranking is a great endorsement of the outstanding work of our academics and reflects our focus on high quality and relevant research, which continues to inform our teaching. We are proud of our achievements and believe we are well placed to accomplish our aim of becoming Australia’s leading university in science, technology and innovation.

Director, Swinburne International
