The University of Queensland best in Australia for undergraduate international relations

The University of Queensland in Brisbane has been voted the best place in Australia to study international relations at undergraduate level by international relations scholars. The results from the Teaching, Research and International Policy (TRIP) survey showed that more than 83% of academics ranked UQ as number one.

Associate Professor Richard Devetak, the Head of UQ’s School of Political Science and International Studies, said: “This is testament to the quality and range of teaching in international relations across the Faculty and University” and that the range of courses offered in international relations at undergraduate level is “second to none, and the quality of teaching is excellent.”

The School is currently ranked 40th in the world (2014 QS World Rankings) which is reflected in the number of award-winning teachers they regularly produce, as well as outstanding teaching evaluation results.

The TRIP survey was carried out globally, although the principal investigators were based at the College of William and Mary in Virginia.  The core team identified partners in each of the countries surveyed who in turn identified the programmes to be studied.  You can see the full report and methodology on the Teaching, Research and International Policy (TRIP) website.
