Nottingham in top 75 places in the world university rankings

We beat local rivals Birmingham and Sheffield by almost ten places

Nottingham is the 75th best university in the world, according to the latest rankings published today by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds).

This year we have slipped out of the top 70 universities globally, after falling five places to 75th, in a year when most UK universities fell much further. One of our closest rivals in the rankings last year, St. Andrews, actually fell further than us and into 77th place globally. We were also more consistent than the likes of York, who fell 24 places to 127th, and we are still the 13th best UK university on the global stage.

Nottingham scored particularly highly in the following categories (out of 100):

Academic Reputation – 71.4 per cent

Employer Reputation – 91.3 per cent

International Faculty – 90.3 per cen

International Students – 87.9 per cent

But was let down by its comparatively low scores in the Citations per Faculty (59 per cent) and the Faculty-Student ratio (50.7 per cent).
