University of Melbourne Named Most Prestigious University Again


UNIVERSITY of Melbourne is Australia’s most prestigious university, according to the latest global study.

The university placed 46th on the Times Higher Education’s world reputation ranking — up from 49th last year.

It came ahead of the University of Sydney and Australian National University, which were both in the 61-70 category.

“But it is disappointing that Australia does not have more universities featured, given that it has six representatives in the top 100 of the World University Rankings,” he said.

“Australia has several young universities that are building a strong teaching and research performance and gaining global recognition; it has 23 institutions in the Young University Rankings.

“This may stand the country in good stead in future editions of the reputation table.”

The reputation rankings was launched in 2011 and considers only a university’s global perception.
