AUT has climbed yet again up the global university rankings, now joining the top 250 and further improving its place in the top group of world universities.

This is according to the prestigious Times Higher Education World University Rankings released in the United Kingdom overnight.

AUT now ranks alongside the University of Otago in the second group and further cements AUT’s place in the top three universities in New Zealand.  It has also retained number one place in New Zealand in terms of research impact and international outlook.

“AUT is a young, modern university and to have continuously moved up the global rankings to now sit second in New Zealand alongside the University of Otago is a significant achievement,” said Vice-Chancellor Derek McCormack. “These results reflect the ongoing efforts of our teaching, research and administrative staff, and the performance of our students and graduates.”

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings was founded in 2004 and provides a definitive list of the world's best universities and uses performance indicators on research, citations, industry incomes, teaching, and international outlook.
