Times Higher Education Rankings for 2016-17 released

The latest Times Higher Education World Universities Ranking is out now, and once again many of the Australian and New Zealand Universities have hung on to their positions amongst the world’s best.

Six Australian universities made the top 100, with the University of Melbourne taking the highest position at number 33 in the World.  The University of Western Australia, and the University of Adelaide made positions 125 and 147 respectively, which means that all the Group of Eight universities are placed within the top 20% of ranked Universities.

All eight of the New Zealand Universities were placed in the overall rankings, with the University of Auckland on top at 165.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. Universities are excluded from the rankings either don’t teach undergraduates or if their research output amounts to less than 1000 articles in the last four years.
