UCL applauds Monash University on its rise to 44th in THE World University Rankings

The exclusive partner for Monash Education in Sri Lanka, Universal College Lanka (UCL) is proud to announce that Monash University has skyrocketed 13 places to be ranked 44th globally in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2023, just released.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings’ methodology uses carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments. Grouped into five areas, the performance indicators include: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).

Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Gardner AC said the landmark results were testament to the hard work of the University’s talented and dedicated staff, and their enduring commitment to world-class research and education. “Monash University has established a world-renowned reputation for undertaking research and education of the highest international quality that addresses challenges of the age, and develops understanding and solutions for the betterment of global communities,” Professor Gardner said.

She added “These results are a reflection of our commitment to fostering a world-class research and teaching environment that supports our goals to be truly diverse, innovative and sustainable, and our ambitious collaboration with a global network of research partners. Monash is a leader in translating ground-breaking research into outcomes and success stories enabled by the breadth of our research capability, which extends from discovery through to application’.

Monash has entered the World’s Top 50 ranking for the first time, whilst also increasing its rank in Australia, climbing two places to second. Since the 2020 edition, Monash has leapt a staggering 40 places in these rankings, over four consecutive years.

Mr. Gihan Silva, CEO of UCL stated “We wish to extend our heartiest congratulations to Monash University on their stupendous achievement. This attainment will inspire our Monash students to achieve higher benchmarks of excellence. These rankings speak volumes for the prestige and world-class reputation of Monash University in propelling students to reach the zenith in their selected spheres of study. Our students are geared for success and have the requisite drive and passion to become global citizens of the future”.

With its unwavering passion to produce high performing students, UCL specialises in preparing students to reach higher echelons of academic excellence at a world- class university. Monash Students at UCL have had the proud distinction of garnering over 360 Monash Global Awards of Excellence over the past 7 years and three of its alumni have gone on to be adjudged as the Best Graduates in Engineering, Business and IT Degree Programmes at recent Monash University Graduations.

UCL invites its Monash students past and present to celebrate the good news and be justly proud of being an integral part of Monash’s success.
