06 March 2013

The University of Melbourne has again been declared No.1 in Australia in the latest Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.

Rising four places from 2012, from 43rd to 39th, the University also broke into the world top 40 for the first time.

The University has been Australia’s leader in these rankings since they were first published in 2011.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Glyn Davis said moving into the top 40 in the world acknowledged and celebrated teaching staff and researchers’ constant pursuit of excellence.

“Melbourne’s sustained leadership and improvement across several different ranking measures highlights the great work being done across the University,” he said.

The 2013 Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings were determined from 16,639 responses to a worldwide, invitation-only, survey of senior academics. It complements the annual Times’ annual World University Rankings, in which Melbourne is also No.1 in Australia and No.28 in the world.
