The University of Southampton has been listed as one of the top 100 Universities in the world for the second time this month, despite its fall in the University rankings for the UK.
The recently announced Times Higher Education World University Rankings placed Southampton as number 90 out of the 100 best Universities in the world. Southampton is one of only 14 UK Universities to be placed in this category.
The rankings used new methodology this year to recognise strengths in teaching, research, citations of research, income from industry and the international mix of students and staff.
Professor Don Nutbeam, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton , said :”We are pleased to see that under the new THE methodology we continue to be placed firmly within the top 100 Universities in the world.”
Earlier this month the University was also placed as number 81 in the 2010 QS World University League rankings.
Professor Nutbeam commented “There is no room for complacency in an intensely competitive international higher education system, and we use the feedback from these rankings to identify ways in which we can improve the quality of our education and the impact of our research.”
