Southampton continues to rise in global university rankings

Published: 11 September 2012

The University of Southampton has again established itself as one of the top 75 universities in the world, according an international rankings guide published today (11 September).

In the 2012 QS World University League Rankings, Southampton is ranked in 73rd place, one of only 18 UK universities in the global elite of 100 higher education institutions. This is the University’s highest ranking in the table and the fourth year in a row that it has improved its position.

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.

Ranked in 73rd place

Professor Adam Wheeler, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton, says: “The University is once again delighted to be placed firmly within the top 100 universities in the world.

“Over recent years, the University has continually improved its position as a global institution recognised for its academic excellence in education and research by employers, graduates and academic colleagues across the world. It is a testament to the excellent work of all our staff and students. The announcement comes as the University is about to welcome students to its new campus in Malaysia.”
