The Times Higher Education World University Rankings


The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2014-15 are the global university performance tables. They judge universities across teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

Seven of the UK and Irish universities we work with have been listed in the world's top 200 universities. They include University of Sussex, Royal Holloway London, University of Sheffield, University of Lancaster, Trinity College Dublin, University of Leeds and University of Leicester.

The quality of education in the Netherlands is demonstrated with ten universities in the top 200, of which our university partners, Wageningen, Groningen and VU University Amsterdam all feature.

In addition to this, University of Lancaster was listed tenth in THE 100 under 50 universities. University of Surrey and University of Strathclyde also make an appearance on this list that highlights the best universities that are less than fifty years old.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings also ranks the best universities for different subjects. University of Leeds and University of Sheffield are both listed in the top 100 best universities for Arts & Humanities, Clinical, Pre-Clinical & Health, Engineering & Technology, and Life Sciences.

We would like to congratulate these universities appearing on this year’s The Times/Sunday Times and The Times Higher Education World rankings.
