Macquarie University has moved up 9 spots in THE Golden Age University Rankings, previously ranked 33 out of 100 universities globally in 2019.

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 “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 exciting to see that Macquarie University has moved up in the rankings, now ranked 24 in the world:

“In a period where the global University sector is being tested more than ever during this pandemic, it is excellent to see that our teaching, academic and professional staff at Macquarie University continue to deliver an outstanding level of education, research and ongoing support to our students during such uncertain times.

Even though 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.

Macquarie University is committed to being an exceptional, globally recognised university, and these results signify our achievements in doing so.”

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.
