UK dominates new most international universities ranking

15 January 2016


Times Higher Education have ranked the top 100 most international universities in the world with Imperial College London leading the list of the 39 UK universities featured.

The UK saw off competition from educational heavyweights such as Switzerland, the US and Australia, which featured the second highest number of entries. London was also ranked as the world’s most international city for higher education with 15 universities in the top 200, putting it ahead of the whole of the United States, Canada and France.

Phil Baty, Times Higher Education World University Rankings editor, 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.”

The international outlook indicator considers each institution’s proportion of international staff, proportion of international students and proportion of research papers published with at least one co-author from another country.
