Times Higher Education rankings rise for the University of Glasgow
The University of Glasgow has risen 22 places in the latest Times Higher Education World Rankings, and is one of five Scottish institutions in the top 200. The news comes less than a month after Glasgow was ranked 51st - its highest ever position - in the QS survey.
Professor Anton Muscatelli, the Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of Glasgow said, “Whilst all surveys and rankings must be treated with a degree of caution I am immensely pleased and proud at what we have achieved. I said previously when the QS results were unveiled that our strength is shown not only in league tables but in the impact that our university has on Scotland’s economic and research landscape. Over recent months we have recruited some of the brightest academic and research talents from across the globe, confirming Glasgow’s reputation as one of the world’s great broad based, research intensive universities. Students returning to campus, and those arriving for the first time, can also be assured of our ambition to provide them with the very best student experience.”
