The Australian National University has jumped two places in the latest listings of the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.
This result complements the university’s position in the QS World University rankings and the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
ANU sits in 42nd position, up from its 2012 ranking of 44, in the top-100 global higher education list.
ANU is ranked closely behind Melbourne University, which takes out the 39th spot – the highest ranking for an Australian university on the list.
The World Reputation Rankings, released on March 4, is based on the largest invitation-only survey of academic opinions, which this year featured more than 16,500 respondents from almost 150 countries.
Times Higher Education Editor Phil Baty said the rankings were great indicators of university excellence, backed by academic experts that know the institutions best.
“With only the top 100 university brands featured in the list, those ranked are in a truly elite group,” he said.
