Exeter University ranked 19th best in UK in new Times World University Rankings

137th in the world, but we move

Exeter is officially the 19th best university in the UK and 137th in the world, according to new rankings.

The Times Higher Education guide released their World University Rankings. Started in 2004, it ranks the best performing universities in the world, comparing a range of 13 topics covering everything from teaching quality to industry outcome.

Exeter was among 1,799 universities across 104 countries surveyed and ranked in their 2023.

Exeter ranked 19th out of 163 UK universities, up six places globally from last year, scoring highly for both International Outlook (92.7) and Citations (94.8). The rankings revealed that Exeter has approximately 16 students to every staff member and that the female to male ratio lies at 53 to 47, perhaps explaining the sheer animalistic on-the-hunt feeling to TP Wednesdays.

Other categories included: teaching, research, and industry income, which scored 32.4, 41.3, and 39.2 respectively (*nervous laughter*). Despite this, Exeter averaged a total score of 58.5, well above halfway, a solid bronze medal if I may say so.
