[UC] UC rises in global top 200 & stays in Australia's top 10

The University of Canberra continues to rise quickly in the global rankings, climbing to 170th place in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for 2022.



The University has jumped 14 spots this year to remain in the top 200 universities worldwide, and retained its place in Australia's Top 10 universities.



The THE World University Rankings is the largest, most diverse ranking system of its kind, assessing over 1,500 universities in 93 countries and regions. It looks at a university’s performance across teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.



University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Paddy Nixon says that the University’s steady rise is a valued and valuable reflection of the quality of its teaching and research, a strong tradition of industry collaboration, and the dedication of its staff.



Such research projects making a real and tangible difference include the ongoing Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills (ARRTS) program, which helps veterans suffering from PTSD, and the play-based Early Learning STEM Australia (ELSA) Program from the STEM Education Research Centre (SERC), which has enjoyed wide success across Australian preschools and early learning centres.
