 Students in a meeting

Top 100

We have been voted in the top 100 most international universities in the world, according to the UK's leading higher education magazine. Times Higher Education ranked the University 52nd in the new league table, which was released recently.

The list was compiled using the 'international outlook' indicator, from the Times Higher Education World University rankings.

This measures the University's international student numbers, its percentages of international staff and the proportion of its research papers published with a co-author from at least one country. This places us above some of the most established institutions in the world.
