Psychology Department ranked 27th in 2011 QS World University Rankings

10 May 2011

The University of Auckland has been ranked in the top 50 in the world and first in New Zealand in life sciences subjects.

In the recently released QS World University Rankings® Life Sciences subject ranking, Auckland was placed 27th in Psychology.

QS ranks universities worldwide based on academic reputation, employer reputation and research citations, with weightings tailored to each subject.

"I think this says that on this ranking we’re one of the best-performing department in the university. Our aspirational goal to be the leading Psychology department in Australasia mightn’t be that far-fetched.

Congratulations to us all – let’s feel good about this."
Doug Elliffe
