Group of Eight Australian Universities

The Group of Eight (Go8) is a coalition of world-leading research intensive Australian universities.[1] The Go8 universities are some of the largest and the oldest universities in Australia[2] and are consistently the highest ranked of all Australian universities. In 2016 all Go8 Universities were ranked in the top 150 worldwide, with six in the top 100. Go8 Universities feature in the top 100 places for every subject area in the QS world university subject rankings. All Go8 Universities are in the QS top 100 for literature, biological sciences, environmental sciences, accounting and finance, anthropology, law and education.

The Go8 Board, which consists of the vice-chancellors (presidents) of its eight member universities, meets five times a year. The current Chair of the Board is Professor Ian Jacobs, Vice-Chancellor, University of New South Wales. Ms Vicki Thomson is the Chief Executive of the Group of Eight, taking up the role in January 2015.[3]

According to the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, in 2008 the Group of Eight universities received almost twice as much research funding as the other 31 Australian universities combined.[4]

Notes

  1. ^ Ranked according to P(top 1%).
  2. ^ rough estimate due to nonspecific number of 2019 student intake
  3. ^ The ARWU Law subject ranking does not necessarily reflect the quality of a given law school (hence why universities without law schools feature on the ranking- see Princeton University). The ARWU Law subject ranking primarily measures the amount and performance of papers which relate to Law (the ranking additionally may include papers from Law-related subjects such as Policy, Public Affairs, and Criminology) and that are associated with, or originate out of, a given university.
  4. ^ The average ranking when drawing from objective academic performance metrics- excluding references to overall rankings, which rely on subjective measures of reputation and such (i.e. only QS Citations Per Paper, QS H-index, THE Citations, THE Research and ARWU metrics are used).
  5. ^ It is notable that UQ Law has been Australia's most-cited law school for four consecutive years since 2017 (i.e. ranking first nationally for citations per paper in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020) according to this metric.[32]
