Keele climbs in Global Top 100 'Golden Age' universities ranking

Keele University has risen up the rankings in a league table charting the best universities founded since the Second World War.

In the same year that the University celebrates its 70th anniversary, the Times Higher Education has placed Keele in 73rd position on its Global Top 100 "Golden Age" league table, an increase from last year’s ranking of 77th.

The table features institutions established in the period between 1945 and 1966, which the Times Higher Education describes as the “Golden Age” in global higher education, characterised by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research.

The rankings are underpinned by 13 different metrics, and include data on teaching, research reputation, and research productivity.
