The University has returned to the top 400 ranking following a series of reforms and a whole of University refresh in 2015.
La Trobe was also ranked at 127 in the top 200 for its international outlook, in the top 300 (at 285) for research and industry income, and in the top 400 for teaching.
Vice-Chancellor Professor John Dewar said the latest results reflect the University's achievements among the community of global scholars and improved recognition of our research publications.
"La Trobe University is getting great results and making a difference to the communities it serves. These results are testament to the social, intellectual and economic contribution of our University," Professor Dewar said.
Professor Dewar said these results follow on from La Trobe also regaining its position in the top 400 in the QS World Universities Ranking last month.
"The results join other significant achievements in the past year: a top 100 place for Arts and Humanities in the Times Higher Education Faculty Area rankings, and a leap of 25 ranks to number 75 in their Top 100 Under 50 survey," he said.
"We are already a great institution that is further improving in leaps and bounds."
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings draw on data from 1,126 institutions, 11.3 million academic papers and more than 11,000 academic surveys.
