Landmark ranking rises for the Scottish University of the Year

We are delighted that the University of Glasgow has been named Scottish University of the Year and has once again risen in the rankings in two of the world’s most prestigious university league tables, consolidating our position as one of the top 100 universities in the world.

In June we improved four places in the QS World University Rankings, rising to 73rd globally, and last month we rose six places in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, to be placed 86th in the world.

In September, we were delighted to be named Scottish University of the Year in The Times & The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.

We are the current Times Higher Education (THE) University of the Year.

The University rose for the fifth consecutive year to its highest ever position of 12th out of 135 UK institutions in The Times & The Sunday Times Good University Guide, up from 14th last year, and remains second overall in Scotland.

The results highlighted positive scores for student experience and teaching quality, and the positive impact of our Campus Development Programme beginning to be felt as we opened the James McCune Smith Learning Hub.

Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, said: "I want to offer my congratulations to the University of Glasgow for being named Scottish University of the Year - a fantastic achievement by the staff and students who continue to lead the way not only in Scotland, but on the world stage.

"This award is a real tribute to the efforts and commitment of staff and students across the University who have risen to the challenges of the last year, and it’s fitting that the University’s strengths in teaching quality, student experience and graduate prospects have been recognised in this way."

We were also delighted to hear we had moved up three places in the Complete University Guide, rising to 16th in the UK, and we rose to 11th in the UK and second in Scotland in the Guardian University Guide 2022.
