AUT has retained its position in the top 300 universities worldwide and as the #3 ranked university in New Zealand according to The Times Higher Education World University rankings released in London this week.
AUT remains in the 251-300 band.
Luke Patterson, Acting Assistant Vice Chancellor Strategy, Students and Marketing, said while university rankings don’t drive our behaviour as a university, “we know they are an important factor for potential students when they make decisions on their academic futures. AUT’s rise in the world rankings over the years is both impressive and valuable to the university and is relevant now more than ever in a COVID-19 world.”
AUT is the only NZ university to have improved its world university rankings year on year compared to other universities. This is particularly remarkable given AUT was not even ranked before 2014.
This overall world ranking sits alongside AUT’s ranking of #41 amongst the world’s universities under 50 years old, announced by THE in June.
AUT is now ranked #19 for Citations, up 13 places on last year. The ranking on International Outlook remains steady.
