Anatomy and Physiology at Melbourne 11th in world for specific subject ranking by QS

This is a great result for these two Departments in the School and their staff are to be congratulated on this outcome


The QS World University Rankings by Subject and Faculty were released on 7 March 2017.  The number of individual  subjects that are ranked has been expanded from 42 - 46 and now includes Anatomy and Physiology.

In terms of the broad Faculty performance in Life Sciences and Medicine, Melbourne ranks at number 13 (compared with 16 last year) and is first in Australia. 

Within the Life Sciences and Medicine,  the Biological Sciences at Melbourne showed the greatest improvement increasing their ranking to 23rd because of an improvement in academic reputation. 

When you look at results for individual subjects, Melbourne was ranked as 11th in the world for Anatomy and Physiology, which is an excellent result. Sydney just managed to sneak in ahead of us to number 10 in the world for Anatomy and Physiology. As Australians we can be proud to see two Australian Universities being rated  so highly in Anatomy and Physiology, in a world ranking system. We just need to work at dislodging Sydney from number 10...
