Macquarie University: Macquarie gains highest ever world ranking

Macquarie University has been ranked among the top 200 global universities, with the announcement today of the 2021 UK Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings.

Macquarie University is now ranked 195th, and the result solidifies Macquarie’s position in the top one percent of universities worldwide.

THE World University rankings are assessed on five pillars, each of which represents a key area of higher education excellence: teaching, industry income, research, citations and international outlook.

“The result is testament to Macquarie University’s true research impact and global reputation,” says Vice-Chancellor Professor S. Bruce Dowton.

“We look forward to further building on our research strengths and continuing to provide far-reaching, transformative, and research-enriched learning experiences.”

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings was established in 2004 and is published annually. The rankings provide a list of the world’s best universities, assessed over different categories across core University areas.
