Australian universities performed exceptionally well in the new ranking, which was launched to reflect the region’s growing strength in the higher education sector.

The University of Melbourne was the only university outside Asia to appear in the top five, coming in third behind the National University of Singapore and Peking University.

Acting Vice-Chancellor Margaret Sheil said that the university was pleased by this validation, within a demanding global market.

“This is a strong endorsement of the university’s dedicated and talented staff and their research and teaching output, as well as the quality of our graduates.”

The THE Asia-Pacific Ranking 2017 analysed universities across 38 nations in East Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania. The ranking uses the same performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings, with some weightings adjusted to reflect the younger profile of some of the universities in the region.

Key areas included teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
