Murdoch University has ranked among the world’s elite institutions in five areas of the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

The University excelled in the Arts and Humanities (381) as well as Life Sciences and Medicine (451-500) categories, with continued rankings for Veterinary Science (41) and Agriculture and Forestry (151-200) plus a new entry for Biological Sciences (451-500).

Murdoch University also ranked well for Social Sciences and Management (394) with a strong performance from Sociology (251-300). Education also performed well, ranked in the top 300 globally (251-300).

Professor David Morrison, Murdoch University’s Deputy Vice Chancellor Research and Innovation, said this achievement was down to the ongoing hard work of the staff and their ability to adapt to a changing research environment.

“It is particularly pleasing to see new entries into the rankings as these reinforce the outcomes of other assessments showing that we are improving in these areas,” Professor Morrison said.

“The improvement seen in this latest ranking across multiple disciplines reinforces the message that that the University continues to be a vibrant and globally connected University.

“In addition to the improvement in these rankings, the University has a focus on translational research, which delivers real world solutions to global challenges across select areas. Although not reflected in these rankings we know this research delivers numerous tangible benefits for our communities.”

The QS rankings are an annual league table of the top universities in the world. Overall, 4,438 universities were evaluated and 1,117 were ranked; more than 127 million citation attributions were analysed and more than 18,900 programs were verified.
