Posted on 04 February 2014

Keele University’s position among the global elite has been underlined by a new table which places it among the 100 most international universities in the world.

Times Higher Education has compiled a list of the top 100 most international universities using the “international outlook” indicator from the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

This examines a university’s international student numbers, its percentage of international staff and the proportion of its research papers published with a co-author from at least one other country. The list is drawn from the world’s top 400 of the World University Rankings 2013-2014.

Keele moved into the top 1.75% of the world’s leading universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-14. The University was 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. Now it has been placed 89th in the list of most international universities in the world.

THE says that with powerful global networks universities can find the best academic talent, attract the brightest students and produce collaborative, innovative research that exploits the resources of multiple institutions and tackles matters of global concern.

Keele University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: “Our aim is to be a truly international university in terms of our student and staff profile and the ways in which we undertake our learning, teaching and research. It is vital that we are constantly looking to develop new international partnerships, raise our profile overseas and attract the best students from not only within the UK but around the world.”
