Melbourne ranked 44th in Academic Ranking of World Universities
The University of Melbourne recently received welcome news of the 2014 Academic Rankings of World Universities from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. This year Melbourne is placed at number 44. This is the first time an Australian institution has been numbered below 50 on the ARWU list of best research universities in the world.
Such a strong result reflects the extraordinary academic contribution of researchers at the University of Melbourne, and excellent research partnerships with institutes, hospitals, companies, think tanks, government agencies and community organisations.
The University of Melbourne has worked hard to encourage an ecosystem of organisations committed to research collaboration, working closely together to address the grand challenges of our times.
The latest ARWU ranking is a collective achievement that celebrates great research for the benefit of our city, state and nation. It also reinforces the importance of the vision of Believe – the Campaign for the University of Melbourne—to give Australia a university equal to the best in the world.
