Sports science gold for Deakin  U

The university is number one in the new Shanghai Ranking for sports science – again

Deakin was in top spot in the first edition of the ranking (2016), which learned readers suggested was a world first for an Australian university – and then did it again the following year (CMM September 19 2017). It was in third place in ’18 (there was no ’19 league table) and third in 2020.

Deakin U wins in what is, as usual, something of a top-ten local derby, Uni Queensland is 7th in the world and Victoria U ninth. All up there are 12 Australian universities in the global top 50, with another six in the 51-100 group.
