To put this news into perspective, there are between 10,000 and 20,000 universities in the world (depending on the definition you employ). In other words, UWA is in the top 0.725%-1.45%, which is a remarkable achievement. Curtin's rise through the ranks is also laudable. Notably, both universities rank even higher on other tables. Having two world-class universities located in Perth augurs well for this state, given the nexus between leading economies and the presence of leading, research-intensive universities. It's a pity WA governments of either persuasion haven't followed the lead of their counterparts in Qld, where support for UQ has seen it reach dizzying heights in international rankings.
