The University of Southampton has featured in the 2020 Best Global Universities rankings with an overall global score of 70%.
The methodology used in the final university rankings report, conducted by US News, is based on thirteen indicators of success, from global research reputation to number of highly cited papers.
Southampton came 94th in the overall rankings, but rose to 10th when only United Kingdom institutions were taken into account. In Europe, Southampton is ranked 33rd, a joint score with Switzerland’s University of Geneva which is the 4th best university in its country.
The findings also ranked universities on their success in 24 subject areas, with Southampton coming 117th in Arts and Humanities, 95th in Clinical Medicine, and 52nd in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Just last summer the University celebrated its return to the global top 100 in three university guides.
