“This outstanding result is testament to our nation-leading performance in research growth, which has risen by over 140% in just five years but, crucially, this has been achieved without ever compromising on our unwavering commitment to top quality education and to student success,” Professor Stirling said.

“Our students are thriving in South Australia’s most modern and sustainable learning environment in Flinders new City Campus in Adelaide’s Festival Plaza, complementing our extensive campus network that reaches across South Australia and the Northern Territory.”

Meanwhile, the future of Flinders’ bio-medical research is expected to hit even greater heights as 600 researchers are set to move into the University’s purpose-built $280 million Health and Medical Research Building at Bedford Park, to drive research on disease prevention and whole-of-life care.

“I thank and congratulate Flinders University’s dedicated staff for delivering a formidable combination of research and teaching excellence,” Professor Stirling said.

The QS World University Rankings evaluates universities across several metrics, including academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty student ratio, citations per faculty, international faculty, and global engagement.
