Our rankings and reputation

At Monash, we take our reputation seriously. Monash has achieved an enviable national and international reputation for research and teaching excellence in a short 50 years. Monash is ranked in the top 1 per cent of world universities. (See 'Our rankings and what they mean'.) And, in line with our vision and strategy for the future, Monash will continue to drive for improvement.

International rankings are not just a league table. Times Higher Education, for example, uses a robust process and multifaceted criteria to compare more than 6000 universities worldwide. It judges them in 13 areas, including teaching excellence, research that pushes the boundaries of understanding and innovation, knowledge transfer, the quality and diversity of staff, and their ability to provide an inspiring, international teaching environment for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

But while rankings are important, we care as much about your individual experience as we do about our position on the global scale. Monash gives you opportunities that don't affect our rankings, but will enrich your life as a Monash student.
