by Madura McCormack

Murdoch was ranked top 91-100 universities under 50 years old by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) earlier this week.

The 40-year-old university is joined at the bottom end of the chart with Charles Darwin University and the University of Canberra.

QS is one the most widely read university rankings in the world but has been criticised for giving weight to subjective indicators.

QS rankings are based on metrics that include academic reputation and staff to student ratio.

Murdoch University has a total of 10,809 students and 833 staff, with 19 percent of the student population being postgraduates, according to the data provided by QS.
