In other subject rankings, Monash ranked 53 in the engineering and technology top 100—the highest ranked Australian institution in this category.  Monash ranked 73 in top 100 sciences subject rankings and in clinical, pre-clinical and health Monash ranked 35 in the top 100.

“This exceptional result is wonderful recognition of the endeavours being undertaken by so many Monash staff to enhance our research and collaboration profile,” Professor Gardner said.

The Best Global Universities rankings encompasses 1,250 institutions from 74 countries.  The rankings are largely derived from publication data including number of publications, citations and citation impact, but also examine the research reputation of institutions and their international collaboration.

Monash University rises in world rankings

Monash University has continued its year-on-year rise, ranking among the top 100 institutions in the world, according to results released recently by Times Higher Education.

Monash remains in the 91-100 band with a rank of 91, representing an improvement of eight places since 2012.

One of just three Go8 universities to increase its ranking, the university has performed strongly across almost every category, climbing 87 places in four years.

Along with the overall top 400 league table, Times Higher Education has also ranked the top 100 institutions by discipline in Engineering and Technology; Social Sciences; Physical Sciences; Life Sciences; Arts and Humanities; and Clinical, Pre-clinical and Health.

Monash University is ranked in the top 50 in the world in three disciplines: Clinical, Pre-Clinical and Health (38), Arts and Humanities (45) and Engineering (49 in the world and third in Australia).

The top 100 universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings represent just 0.5 per cent of the world’s higher education institutions.

The results were released at the Times Higher Education World Academic Summit in Singapore, where Monash University Vice-Chancellor Professor Ed Byrne presented at a panel session on “Building a World Class University.”

Professor Byrne detailed Monash University’s recent rise in the global university rankings, which he attributes to a combination of a consistent focus on excellence in research and teaching, openness to international engagement, and a commitment to making a positive impact in the community.

“This rise in our position is a welcome reflection of the hard work Monash staff have put in over recent years. It is a vindication of our belief that a globalized age requires universities to be globally networked if they are to deliver top-quality research and education,” Professor Byrne said.
