Macquarie University maintains strong global ranking

16 August 2019


Macquarie University has consolidated its place among the world's top research universities in the 2019 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), ranking in the 201-300 bracket.

ARWU is a research focused ranking which measures quality of education, quality of faculty, research output and per capita performance.

The world-leading research and acclaimed academic programs at Macquarie have led the University to be recognised as one of the top universities in Australia.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Engagement, Professor David Wilkinson, said: “The latest ARWU ranking cements Macquarie’s place among the top research universities worldwide, and is a strong reflection of our focus and investment in quality and innovation in research and teaching.”

Published annually since 2003, the ARWU is a widely referenced ranking of the world’s research universities.

More than 1800 universities are assessed by ARWU every year and the best 1000 are published.

ARWU uses six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, number of highly cited researchers selected by Clarivate Analytics, number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science, number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index, and per capita performance of a university.
