Keele University has moved into the top 1.75% of the world’s leading universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-14.

The University has been placed, for the third consecutive year, among the world’s leading universities, moving into the top 350 of the world’s best higher education institutions.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The table presents a broad view of institutional performance based on 13 performance indicators.

Keele University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: "Our position among the world’s top universities underlines our commitment to teaching excellence and outstanding research. It is very pleasing that not only have we maintained a placing among the World’s best universities but we have improved our position. This is an excellent result for Keele, which shows that our achievements are being recognised, not only locally and nationally, but internationally. The National Student Survey placed us second in the country for overall student satisfaction and our student employability remains extremely high.”

Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, said: ""Times Higher Education's World University Rankings use a trusted range of 13 rigorous performance indicators and are the only global rankings to judge world-class research institutions against all of their core activities - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

“So, Keele University's position in the top 350 is very impressive. The University's international outlook appears to be its key strength and has helped it return to its position in the top 1.75% institutions worldwide."
