World rankings rise for the University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow has risen five places from 59 to 54 position in the latest QS World Rankings which were released today (Tuesday 11 September 2012). It is further good news for Glasgow, which is one of only three Scottish institutions in the top 100.

The Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of Glasgow, Professor Anton Muscatelli said, “I am delighted that our progress in these rankings over recent years has continued and whilst we should always be cautious about league tables, this is our best ever showing. The QS World Rankings are significant as they confirm the reputation of Glasgow as a world leading research intensive university."

"It is a tribute to the tremendous hard work and dedication of our staff that Glasgow is recognised through the QS Rankings and other measurements as amongst the best teaching and research environments in the world.”
