Nottingham improves world ranking 

October 12th, 2022

The University of Nottingham has been ranked among the best in the world.

Nottingham has jumped an impressive 11 places to position 130 according to the Times Higher Education World University Ranking 2023, the highest position for almost a decade. It also maintains its position as 18th in the UK.

Analysis of the rankings indicate that the University’s position in the last few years has been enhanced by influential research into Covid, as well as improvements in highly cited research, income from industry and proportion of International Staff and students.

Dr Paul Greatrix, Registrar at the University of Nottingham said: “The latest league table confirms our status as a world-leading, globally connected, university.

“We are incredibly proud of the research that our colleagues have carried out during the Covid pandemic. From work into finding a vaccine to rebuilding business resilience, from looking at the underlying causes and risks that exacerbate Covid in some people to analysing its impact on the television industry we had research from all corners of the university demonstrating our breadth and world-changing impact.

“Alongside our academic reputation, this demonstrates the full-rounded experience we provide for our students. We unlock potential and encourage students and staff to transform the world around them.”

THE World University Rankings assess more than 1,600 institutions across 99 countries to produce the tables using 13 performance indicators which are grouped into five areas: Teaching (the learning environment); Research (volume, income and reputation); Citations (research influence); International outlook (staff, students and research); and Industry income (knowledge transfer).
