School of Government and International Relations Shines in World Rankings
It was announced this week that Griffith University has ranked amongst the Top 100 Universities for five subject areas in the 2015 QS World University Rankings by Subject.
For the University’s School of Government and International Relations (SGIR) this also means being within easy reach of the top 50 institutions in the field of politics and international studies globally. In Queensland, the School is the top performing institution in the field, and nationally SGIR sits behind only three other Australian universities.
University Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Ian O’Connor this week recognised the strong achievement of Griffith’s five study areas ranked in the top 100 in the world, and the University’s ten other study areas making the rankings, some for the first time.
Professor O’Connor drew attention to Griffith’s growing national and international reputation for research impact.
