Australian Universities fare worse internationally

Times Higher Education

Adelaide Unversity is no longer in the top 200 universities worldwide according to the Times Higher Education. This has meant Australia has dropped from eight representatives in the top 200, to seven this year.

Melbourne University has dropped from 28 on the list, to 34. The Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra has also fallen from 37 to 48.

Meanwhile, Monash University has improved its standing by rising from 99 to 91.

Seven of the top ten places were US based institutions, with the UK also dominating the list.

With planned changes to the higher education sector by the federal government (the responsible Minister is Christopher Pyne), it will be interesting to note the long term trends for Australian universities.
