Top medical schools in Australia
Medicine is a particularly strong sector for Australian higher education, with many of the country’s leading universities boasting a stronger ranking for medicine than in the overall QS World University Rankings®. The Universities of Melbourne and Sydney are both ranked within the world’s 20 best universities for medicine (12th and 17th), and are joined in the global top 50 by the University of New South Wales (29=), Monash University (33rd) and University of Queensland (42nd). The country’s highest ranked university overall, Australian National University, comes slightly lower down – but still claims a place among the world’s 100 leading medical departments.
Top medical schools in Asia
Asian countries also have a very strong presence in the ranking of the world’s top medical schools, and particularly Japan. Ten Japanese universities rank among the top 200 for medicine, led by the University of Tokyo (20th) and Kyoto University (35th). Also ranked among the global top 50 are the National University of Singapore (21st), University of Hong Kong (24=), National Taiwan University (43rd) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (49th). China, South Korea and Taiwan all claim four entries in the top 200; Hong Kong, Israel and Thailand have two entries each; Malaysia and Singapore one apiece.
