The QS rankings are one of only a few internationally recognised indicators of excellence in teaching, research, citations of research, industry reputation and the international mix of students and staff.

Professor Don Nutbeam, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton, says: “We are delighted to see that we continue to be acknowledged for our world-class performance and placed firmly within the top 100 universities in the world.

“I am particularly pleased that our progress appears to be on the basis of improvements in academic performance in research and international employers opinions of our graduates.”
