UQ subjects among global best

The University of Queensland has cemented its position as a global top 100 university, performing strongly in a league table of subjects released April 29.

The university has 19 subjects ranked among the top 50 worldwide in the 2015 QS World University Rankings by Subject, and three subjects in the top 20.

UQ Veterinary School

UQ veterinary science is ranked 22nd in the world!

QS evaluated more than 3,000 universities and ranked the 854 that met its strict criteria.

UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ’s strong position reflected the outstanding teaching and staff at the university.

“In line with top ten placings in other global rankings, UQ has placed eleventh in the global rankings and is the top in Australia in Environmental Sciences, an area that teaches the next generation how to tackle the world’s environmental challenges in practical ways,” he said.

“This is a great achievement in a globally-relevant field.

“UQ continues to be a world leader in Agriculture & Forestry, moving from 18th position in 2014 to 15th position this year.

“Additionally, UQ ranked 22nd for Veterinary Science, a subject newly recognised by the QS rankings.”

“These two courses are run from our Gatton campus, and their high ranking reflects the excellent hands-on experience and world-class facilities on offer.”

The university also performed strongly in Psychology, placing 18th in the rankings.

Changes to the QS World University Rankings by Subject methodology has been a factor in Australian universities’ downward trend in this ranking; however, the University of Queensland continues to perform strongly with the university ranked in the top 100 for 31 of the 36 subjects QS evaluates.

“Notwithstanding changes to QS methodology, UQ continues to perform strongly in these rankings,” Professor Høj said.

About the Sydney Centre for Veterinary Education

The Post Graduate Committee in Veterinary Science was formed in 1961 by a group of forward-thinking veterinarians—university lecturers, professional association members and those from associated industries who recognised during the 1950s the growing need for continuing veterinary education.

Sydney Veterinary School

Study veterinary science at Sydney

This led in 1965 to the formation of the Post Graduate Foundation in Veterinary Science (PGF) at the University of Sydney, which was established under the authority of the university’s Senate and governed by a Council elected by its members. Its aim of funding continuing education for the profession led to the expansion many more services.

These initiatives of 40 years ago established the world’s first and leading organisation dedicated to postgraduate veterinary education. The first activity was organizing the delivery of regular refresher courses of two to five days’ duration. In the first year, two courses were held and by 1996 there were 68. In 1997 this grew to 94, and by 1998, 102 courses were held. There has been comparable growth in our other activities covering publishing, technical information search and dissemination, distance and online education.

From its inception the PGF enjoyed the support and participation of our New Zealand colleagues. Veterinarians from many other countries around the world also use our resources and attend our courses. With the expansion of veterinary practice and new communications technology we are looking forward to increasing involvement in fulfilling the continuing education requirements of veterinarians everywhere.

On August 4, 2008 the Post Graduate Foundation in Veterinary Science officially became the Centre for Veterinary Education.

Sydney Centre for Veterinary Education

As an established and recognized leader in continuing veterinary education, the Centre for Veterinary Education has been a worldwide provider of continuing professional development to the veterinary community for over 40 years. Formerly the Post Graduate Foundation in Veterinary Science (PGF), we officially became the Centre for Veterinary Education (CVE) on August 4, 2008.

The centre provides up-to-date education and information to veterinarians, vet nurses, technicians, carers, support staff and all those involved in the care of animals, and are committed to helping improve the health, well-being and welfare of all animals.

Education and information streams include a variety of innovative educational deliveries, from distance education and online courses to events and publications.
