Is that good?

In a recent study by The Times, the University of Birmingham has been ranked 53rd out of the best 200 universities in Europe.

The results were dominated by universities in the UK, with nearly a quarter of British universities making the list.

Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London were the three highest scorers in Europe.

The universities were measured on their teaching environment, research environment, citations (research influence), industry income and international outlook.

We would be top if it was based on the appearance of campus

The results landed Brum in the top 20% for international outlook, research and citations and we now stand as the 119th best university in the world.

The University of Warwick ranked higher than Brum at number 31, scoring extremely well in the International Outlook category.

The information was collected for part of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16.

Germany had the second most universities featured on the list, with 36 in the top 200 and almost a third in the top 50.

So all in all, Birmingham should be pretty happy with their position at number 53.

But surely we should have made the top 50?
