University of Exeter in world top 100 for Arts and Science

The influential Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings have placed Exeter in the top 100 for both Arts and Humanities and Life Sciences. The two Colleges were ranked 65 and 95 respectively.

The THE rankings are the only global university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The top universities rankings employ 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

Nick Kaye, Dean of the College of Humanities said: “Our successful rankings across the board reflect the excellent quality of research and teaching in all disciplines. The creative and dynamic atmosphere of the College contributes to our achievements, as well as providing a welcoming and stimulating atmosphere for our students."

Dan Charman, Dean of the College of Life and Environmental Sciences added: “We are committed to pursuing world class research that has a positive global impact and tackles the challenges of the 21st century together with attracting some of the best and brightest students from the UK and across the world. Our teaching and research excellence has undoubtedly had an influence on our position in the rankings.”

The influential Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings have placed Exeter at an institutional level in the top 150 for the first time, in 148th position.
