Harvard University has been ranked numero uno in the world while University of Melbourne is first in Australia as per the 2013 Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.

Rankings are based on responses from academics living in over 144 countries to an answer to an email survey conducted by Thomson Reuters.

 “This ranking is based purely on subjective judgement, but it is the expert judgement of those who know excellence in teaching and research better than anyone else,”

Harvard University topped the list and was immediately followed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, the University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University.

University of Melbourne was Australia’s number one educational while Australian National University came second in the list.

“We’ve sometimes done better by objective measures than is reflected in our reputation,”

“It is best to always take any ranking with a grain of salt. But as far as they go, rankings are another useful barometer for the health of higher education in Australia.”

“It is nice when Australia is acknowledged on the world stage. But thankfully government funding decisions are not off the back of reputation rankings, which can be very fickle,”

“Some international students consider university rankings when choosing universities. The improved position of some Australian universities will help them attract students willing to pay high fees,”

“However it remains true that no international university ranking is a good guide to teaching quality. The Times Higher Education rankings include a teaching component, but there are no globally comparable measures of learning or student satisfaction. Input measures such as student-to-staff ratios are an unsatisfactory alternative.”
