Macquarie University has moved into the 201-250 band in the 2018/19 UK Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, announced today.
This result consolidates Macquarie’s position in the top one percent of universities worldwide.
Macquarie previously placed in the 251-300 band in 2017/18.
The THE rankings are assessed from five Pillars, each of which represents a key area of higher education excellence: teaching, industry income, research, citations and international outlook.
Professor David Wilkinson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Corporate Engagement and Advancement) said it was pleasing to see Macquarie had risen into a higher band this year.
“Though international ranking systems are only one indicator of performance we are pleased to see Macquarie’s global standing and reputation rise, reflecting our strengths in research, international appeal and industry engagement. These strengths will continue to put us in good stead for future positive performance internationally.”
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, established in 2004, are published annually and provide a list of the world’s best universities, assessed over different categories across University core areas.
