Macquarie University ranks 33 in THE Golden Age University Rankings

26 June 2019

Macquarie University has been ranked 33 out of 100 Universities around the world in the 2019 UK Times Higher Education (THE) Golden Age University Rankings, announced today.

The Golden Age refers to universities that have been established for more than 50 years, but less than 80 years. THE “Golden Age” rankings are assessed on five Pillars, each of which represents a key area of higher education excellence: teaching, industry income, research, citations and international outlook.

Professor David Wilkinson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Engagement said it was pleasing to see that Macquarie University has been ranked 33 in the world:

“Although international rankings only represent one way of assessing a university’s performance, we are pleased with the acknowledgement that Macquarie’s global standing and reputation is reflecting our strengths in research, international appeal and industry engagement.

“These strengths will continue to put us in good stead for future positive performance internationally.”

The Times Higher Education “Golden Age” ranking was established between 1945 and 1967. The Golden Age ranking uses Times Higher Education data to cast a spotlight on the best universities established for more than 50 years, but less than 80 years. The ranking takes its name from what was a Golden Age in global higher education, characterised by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research.
