The University of Melbourne is among the world’s top-performing universities, according to the recent academic discipline rankings released by the London-based Times Higher Education Supplement (THES).
The University’s ranking has moved up in all disciplines surveyed by the THES. All Melbourne disciplines are in the top 30 in the world, with three in the top 10.
The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Glyn Davis, says the latest rankings confirm that Melbourne has performed consistently well in international and national rankings over the past three years.
“The University of Melbourne aspires to be one of the finest universities in the world. These rankings show that we are already highly regarded by the world’s top performers.”
The THES has ranked Melbourne’s Biomedicine and Technology disciplines as No 1 in Australia.
The strong Biomedicine ranking follows the University’s recent success in Australian competitive research funding in health and medicine where it won more than AU$118 million in funding commencing in 2007.
