University of Exeter retains its position as one of the top 200 universities in the world

02 September 2016


The latest Academic Ranking of World Universities 2016 was published in August, with the University of Exeter retaining its place among the top 200 ranked global institutions in the world.

The ranking, which was first published in 2003, is based on several academic and research-based measures, including the number of articles published in leading journals Nature and Science, and the number of highly cited researchers. Within the UK, the rankings placed Exeter between 16th and 21st, compared to 18th-21st last year.

Professor Sir Steve Smith, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of Exeter, said: “These latest rankings once again confirm that Exeter is making a real global impact through its vital new research. The important factors that determine our rankings, such as number of citations and published research in highly respected journals, offer a key illustration of just how respected our world-leading academics are due to their innovative, pioneering work.”

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
