Glasgow improves in the latest THE World University Rankings

The University of Glasgow has improved its position among the top 100 universities in the 2021 THE (Times Higher Education) World University Rankings.

The University has risen by seven places to 92nd. Our improved position is attributed to a better performance in the Citations pillar of the rankings, which has a weighting of 30%. We have also shown improvements in both the Research and Teaching reputation metrics which are weighted at 18% and 15% respectively.

Our rating for International Outlook, weighted at 7.5%, has also improved: this category measures the percentage of international staff and students and international co-authorship.

Rachel Sandison, Vice Principal External Relations, said: “THE World University Rankings are an important indicator of global performance. They measure performance across teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. Our standing in the global higher education arena has been endorsed in an increasingly competitive environment.”
