Macquarie University has been ranked 192 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022, Macquarie’s highest ever position in the prestigious rankings, up three places against universities worldwide.

With this result Macquarie continues its progress towards its goal of being sustainably ranked in the top 200 universities internationally, and places Macquarie 11th amongst Australian universities.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings assess more than 1500 institutions based on 13 performance indicators grouped into five categories: teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.

With 60 per cent weighting given to research output, influence and renown, Macquarie’s result reflects the University’s growing international reputation for high quality and impactful research. Macquarie also saw an uplift in its scores for teaching and learning.

Vice-Chancellor and President of Macquarie University, Professor S Bruce Dowton, says the latest rankings result reaffirms the University’s reputation as a global leader in teaching and research.

“Macquarie University reaching its highest ever position in the Times Higher Education rankings is a fantastic reflection of our collective commitment to our core missions: transformative learning and teaching for our students, and advancing discovery and dissemination of knowledge through our research.

“While rankings are just one measure of our success in these endeavours, it is gratifying to see that Macquarie continues on an upward trajectory in its international standing despite the significant challenges of the past year.”
