Ranking / Awards

The University of Glasgow has risen eight places to 80th in the 2018 Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

To compile the prestigious global ranking, Times Higher evaluates several aspects of a university's performance including teaching, research, international outlook and reputation.

Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, the Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of Glasgow said, “I am absolutely delighted that the University of Glasgow has risen eight places in the global world rankings to 80th position. This news underlines the strength and quality of teaching at the University of Glasgow, as well as recognising the tremendous student experience that we offer. The rankings rise comes as we embark on a £1bn redevelopment and expansion of our main campus. The new facilities will be truly world leading and further confirm Glasgow as a global centre for learning, teaching and research.

Kate Powell, President of the University of Glasgow Students’ Representative Council said, “We are delighted to hear that Glasgow has soared in the latest world rankings. Students will be pleased to know that the excellent teaching and research at the University of Glasgow is recognised. Anyone who comes here knows the importance that is placed on the overall the student experience which is genuinely second to none.”‌

Phil Baty, editor of the THE World University Rankings, said: “The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, apply rigorous standards, using tough global benchmarks across all of a global research university’s key missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The results are trusted by students and their families, academics, university leaders and governments. For University of Glasgow to make 80th in the world is an outstanding achievement to be celebrated. A rise of eight places within the top 100 of this list is particularly impressive given the intensifying global competition. The rise of Chinese universities and other East Asian nations following successful excellence initiatives is a characteristic of the rankings, so you have to run fast just to stand still in these rankings.”
