The University of Sydney has been ranked among the top 100 most prestigious universities in the world in the latest Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.
The annual rankings are created by canvassing the views of more than 10,300 respondents, in 133 countries, about which institutions are the best in their field for research and teaching.
With a global ranking of 61-70, the University of Sydney retains its position as third in Australia, and is one of only three universities nationally to be included in the list. Harvard University topped the rankings, which are dominated by United States-based institutions.
"One caveat with the Times Higher Education reputation surveys is that the rankings are based on a relatively small sample, which make the results dramatically variable year-on-year," said Dr Richard Cook, the University's Manager of External Benchmarks.
"For a ranking exercise where even one vote can make a big difference, the University of Sydney has performed remarkably well and consistently over the years."
The University of Sydney has welcomed the NSW Government's $25 million pledge to create the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship as a new collaborative venture in the higher education sector.
