Leicester among worlds most international universities

Our University has been ranked amongst the leading international universities in the world on the Times Higher Education top 200 list - placing at number 72.

A spokesperson for the THE said: “All institutions in the top 800 of the ranking have been considered. This makes the inclusion of University of Leicester in the list of the top 200 most international universities a significant achievement.

“Your international outlook helps you attract the very highest calibre of staff and students. Both the diversity of a university’s student body and the extent to which its academics collaborate with international colleagues are signs of how global an institution really is, and these factors are among the 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that allow Times Higher Education to produce the most comprehensive global university rankings in the world."

Last year the THE World University Rankings 2015-16 saw Leicester climb 32 places to 167 – placing Leicester firmly among the top 1 per cent of universities in the world.
