Charles Darwin University in Top 4% Globally

Charles Darwin University claims to be "... ranked in the top two percent of universities worldwide", based on the THE World University Rankings. However, CDU is ranked 301–350 out of 1,000 institutions, placing it in the top 30%, not 2%. In 2017 the UK Advertising Standards Authority issued guidelines to stop UK universities making similar misleading claims.  Perhaps similar guidelines are needed in Australia.

The Webometrics Ranking of World Universites places CDU 1,165 out of 27,000 institutions. So it would be reasonable for CDU to claim to be ranked in the top four percent of universities worldwide, on that evidence.
