Monash University soars in World Reputation Rankings

Monash University has secured its highest-ever global ranking of 62 in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings 2022.

The University climbed an impressive 30 places globally in the prestigious ranking of international universities released today, and two places nationally to now rank third in Australia.

The University’s teaching performance was also ranked 62 in the world this year, up 23 places from 2021, while the research reputation also climbed 30 places to 62nd globally. This comes off the back of the University’s top-50 placement in the overarching THE World University Rankings, positioning 44th globally.

The reputation rankings are calculated from responses to the world’s largest invitation-only opinion survey of senior, published academics.

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Gardner AC said this year’s THE World Reputation Ranking was a testament to the quality of research and education at Monash, which is helping to solve global issues.

“This remarkable ranking result, as judged by leading global scholars, continues to strengthen Monash’s reputation as one of the most excellent and innovative universities in the world,” Professor Gardner said.

“It recognises our commitment to delivering high quality research and education as we continue working towards addressing the most significant global challenges facing our world today.”

The University has risen 56 places in six years, demonstrating continuous improvement, dedication and commitment to excellence in teaching and research.
