ANU has been named the 25th most international university in the world, according to the latest Times Higher Education rankings.
The Times ranked ANU as the highest placed Australian university, its third year in a row in the top position.
"The ranking reflects the unique role ANU plays in linking Australia to the world," said Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC.
"Our staff and students draw on the best research from across the globe and that is what continues to attract the best people to join us."
The rankings are based on the percentage of staff from overseas, the number of research papers with an author from overseas, and the percentage of international students.
Professor Schmidt said the success showed ANU is fulfilling its founding mission to ensure Australia takes its seat at the table of global research and learning.
"ANU is doing its part to bring Canberra to the world and the world to Canberra," he said.
