Monash ranks sixth globally in Times Higher Education Golden Age Rankings 2020

Monash University has retained its rank of sixth in the world in the latest edition of the Times Higher Education Golden Age Rankings 2020, released today.

The Golden Age ranking uses Times Higher Education data to cast a spotlight on the best universities founded between 1945 and 1966 - the "Golden Age" in global higher education characterised by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research, following World War II.

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Margaret Gardner AC, said the results further confirmed Monash’s reputation as a leading university in research and education on both a local and global scale.

“In just over 60 years, Monash University has grown to become the largest university in Australia, renowned for its quality education, transformative research, global reach and extensive alumni network,” Professor Gardner said.

“Retaining our rank of sixth in the world in THE Golden Age rankings is evidence of the University’s enviable national and global reputation for research and teaching excellence.”

The Times Higher Education Golden Age Rankings 2020 follow the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020 released last year, in which Monash soared nine places to equal 75th.
