Region. UWS scores high ranking

UWS research scored well in the Australian Research Council's (ARC) Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation, with two of the university's key research areas - cultural studies and plant biology - labelled "well above world standard" and achieving a score of five, the highest ranking possible. "Of the 21 broad research disciplines that UWS is research active in, the majority were rated at or above world standard, which is very pleasing," says Professor Andrew Cheetham, UWS Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research). The ERA 2010 National Report is the first comprehensive assessment of the research quality within Australia's universities, measuring it against research carried out by other institutions around the world
