UOW also increased the number of citations each faculty member has received in academic journals around the world – a clear measure of the growing impact and quality of its research.

La Trobe University was placed 386th in the 2016/17 QS World University Ranking, an improvement of eight ranking points on the 2015 outcome and a further lift from 2014. La Trobe is now ranked in the top 400 by all three major ranking agencies: the QS, the Times Higher Education and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).

The annual QS ranking uses six indicators to compare the world’s top 900 universities: academic and employer reputation, staff–student ratios, research citations and the proportion of international staff and students.
