Value younger universities: IRU Members Recognised for Excellence

All six participating* IRU members remain in the Times Higher Education ranking of the world’s best 100 universities under 50 years old.

“Our inclusion in these rankings once again demonstrates the exceptional research and teaching done across the IRU,” said La Trobe University Vice-Chancellor and IRU Chair Professor John Dewar.

“We especially congratulate The University of Newcastle, now named the leading Australian university in this ranking as they approach the 50th anniversary of their foundation.”
