UC Riverside is officially better than 98% of the world’s universities

We rock!

New world university rankings have been released, revealing that UC Riverside is one of the world’s best institutions.

The study, which judged over 1000 universities across the world, placed UC Riverside 271st in the world.

Riverside proudly sits next to NC State, who placed at 277 and just ahead of UC Santa Cruz.

We were also rated in the top 150 globally for Environmental Sciences.

At the top of the table, MIT retained the top spot, followed closely by Stanford and Harvard.  Stanford overtook the University of Cambridge into second place and in doing so, it means that the United States holds all of the top-three places for the first time since the inaugural rankings of 2004.
