Melbourne ranks in top 30 world universities
The University ranked 28 in the prestigious rankings this year, up from 37.
University of Melbourne Provost Professor Margaret Sheil welcomed the announcement and Melbourne’s sustained rise among its international peers.
“Breaking into the top 30 universities in the world is a significant achievement built on our strategy aimed producing globally competitive research, the provision of internationally recognized degree programs and engagement locally and internationally.
“Fundamentally, however, this is a testament to the high calibre of the work staff undertake every day.”
The rankings use 13 indicators of the quality of teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook to assess the top universities around the world. The rankings have been developed in partnership with Thomson Reuters.
The THE rankings come after the University was ranked number one in Australia and 57 in the world in the Academic Ranking of World Universities and number 36 in the world in the QS rankings, released earlier this year.
