The University of the South Pacific is now ranked amongst the top 10 percent of universities worldwide in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2022.

USP’s Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Pal Ahluwalia says it is a proud moment for the USP to be ranked in one of the most prestigious ranking systems in the world.

He says the USP is now part of an exclusive club of universities.

Professor Ahluwalia says they have achieved particular renown in two categories.

He says the USP is now amongst the top 400 universities of the world for International Outlook and the top 500 for Industry Income.

Professor Ahluwalia says this is by any standards a remarkable achievement and even more significant given our developing world context.

The Vice Chancellor says today is a day of great celebration for their staff, students, alumni, member countries and the donor community.

He says it reflects on the confidence that they have instilled in the USP and is a great time to rejoice and thank them for their unwavering support.

The University was tested against a set of thirteen performance indicators across five pillars namely: (i) Teaching (the learning environment), (ii) Research (volume, income and reputation), (iii) Citations (research influence), (iv) International Outlook (staff, students and research) and (v) Industry Income (industry knowledge).

Professor Ahluwalia says the USP’s highly acclaimed academics including their four academics named amongst the top 2 percent of most influential scientists by Stanford University, strong partnerships, collaborative performance and research-intensive nature reflects the high scores achieved.

He says the USP community can take great pride in the outstanding achievements that have led to this validation of the tremendous work their people do.

The Vice Chancellor says this celebration of ranking most certainly is for their researchers, academics and students who are involved in ensuring that they advance knowledge and continue to be the premier University of the Pacific.

He says despite our geographical characteristics, resource constraints and other difficulties unique to our region, it is their commitment to academic and research excellence, coupled with regional and international partnerships and networks, that have allowed them to participate in THE global ranking.
