Psychology at UNSW remains the leading school in Australia for Psychology, according to the World University Rankings by subject and the recently released national Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT).

A range of global university rankings* now operate at the subject level, including the influential QS rankings, the Times Higher Education (THE) rankings, the Academic Rankings of World Universities (ARWU) and the University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP). UNSW Psychology is the only School in Australia to be within the top 50 of all of these rankings and with the average highest ranking in the Southern hemisphere across these different ranking systems – this speaks volumes of the quality of the School according to a diverse range of measures.

Measures of teaching performance making up this year’s QILT dataset also ranked UNSW Psychology as the top performing Go8 School in Australia for teaching across undergraduate and postgraduate levels**.
