North Ryde. University in the 'top group'

The Australian government’s inaugural Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative has given Macquarie University 5 out of 5 for scientific research. The ERA assesses research quality within Australia's higher education institutions using a combination of indicators and expert review by committees comprising experienced, internationally-recognised experts. "In achieving the maximum ratings for these five key disciplines, Macquarie has demonstrated that it is in the top group of Australian universities," said Professor Jim Piper, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research). "Only five larger institutions have done better overall, and even fewer have matched Macquarie across the experimental sciences."
