CDU’s strongest pillar was Citations where it ranked in the second decile, coupled with a strong result for International Outlook.

The performance indicators are grouped into five areas:

  • Citations – research influence (30%)
  • International Outlook – staff, students and research (7.5%)

CDU was named as one of the top universities in the world under 50 years old, in the prestigious THE rankings, achieving a rank of 34th in the world in the 2018 Times Higher Education 200 Under 50 list.

The table employs the same 13 separate indicators as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, but the 200 Under 50 Rankings methodology has been carefully re-calibrated to reflect the special characteristics of younger universities, giving less weight to subjective indicators of academic reputation.
