Murdoch’s world ranking success

April 7, 2017

Murdoch University has surged 14 places higher in the Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings.

Murdoch University’s international reputation continues to grow, surging 14 places higher in the Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings.

The University is now ranked joint 68th in these prestigious rankings of the top 200 universities aged 50 years or under from around the world.

2017 THE Young University Rankings, previously known as the THE 150 Under 50, rank teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income of all universities under 50 years old.

Murdoch University Vice Chancellor, Professor Eeva Leinonen, said the rise demonstrated the growth in Murdoch University’s reputation for world class research and quality teaching.

“Many of Murdoch University’s academics are world leaders in their areas of expertise producing translational research that strives towards the common good of local, national and global communities,” Professor Leinonen said.

“The THE ranking is an endorsement of the impact Murdoch University is having in the world.”

THE Young Universities Ranking relies on the same data as its flagship THE ranking, “recalibrated to reflect the missions of younger, more dynamic institutions.”

"Australia is one of the leading nations in this list of the world’s best young universities, claiming 23 of the top 200 places; it trails only the UK on quantity," Times Higher Education Rankings Editor Phil Baty said.

"A key strength for Australia in this ranking is that it has representatives that were founded in every decade between the 1960s and 1990s, suggesting that the country has a promising future in the Under 50 list in the years to come."
