Exeter ranked amongst top 100 most international universities

The University of Exeter has been recognised as one of the most international universities in the world.

The University ranked 65th in the latest Times Higher Education league table of the global 100 most international universities, published today (January 14 2016).

The 2016 Most International Universities list, complied by the THE, considers each institution’s percentage of international staff, its international student numbers and the proportion of its research papers published with a co-author from at least one other country.

The THE which publishes the rankings, said: “An institution’s global outlook is one of the key markers of a prestigious university. The top institutions hire faculty from all over the world, attract students from a global market of top talent and collaborate with leading departments wherever they happen to be based.

“It is great news for all the institutions in the list of the most international universities in the world. It is a sign of great potential, competitiveness and dynamism.”

The University of Exeter is in the top one percent of institutions globally, and is one of the global top 100 universities according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015, positioned 93rd.  Exeter also ranks 7th in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide league table, 10th in The Complete University Guide and 9th in the Guardian University Guide 2016.
