Keele has been placed, for the first time, among the top universities in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The University is positioned in the band 301-350 for the world  and  130th equal in Europe. The tables present a broad view of institutional performance. It is the eighth year that the Times Higher has published its global university rankings.

Keele University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: "This is an excellent result for Keele and congratulations must go to the whole Keele community. It shows that our commitment to providing a high quality educational experience for students, shaped by outstanding research contributing positively to social, environmental and economic agendas, is being recognised not only locally and nationally but internationally."

Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, said: "Higher education which has always had a peripatetic, institutional aspect, is becoming an ever more global undertaking and these rankings help us to see and make sense of the rapid changes afoot."
