Macquarie University moves up again in 2015 QS global rankings

15 September 2015

Macquarie University has moved up 25 places to 229th according to the 2015/16 QS World University Rankings, released today.

QS assesses more than 3500 institutions worldwide on research, teaching, employability and international outlook, though it publishes the standings of only the top 800 universities.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Corporate Engagement and Advancement, Professor David Wilkinson, said: “Although Macquarie’s strategy is not dictated by rankings, it is pleasing to see the University’s global standing and reputation rise.

“As Macquarie continues to pioneer a new approach to learning and teaching, and achieve greater international prominence in research discovery, we expect many more of these broad indicators reflecting that upward trend.”

In August Macquarie was once again ranked as a top institution in the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities, as one of 47 universities in the Asia-Pacific region that appear within the top 300 in the world.

The third of the major international rankings – the Times Higher Education World University Rankings – will be released in October.
