University rises 20 places in THE World University Rankings

The University of Aberdeen has risen 20 places in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2022, strengthening its position among the world's top 200 universities.

Aberdeen is now ranked 158th in the world, 22nd in the UK and is one of three Scottish universities within the world top 200.

Of the five broad pillars on which the rankings are based, the University scored highest in ‘International Outlook’ where it was ranked 31st globally and 9th in the UK. It also saw a rise in its score across the Teaching, Research, and Industry Income pillars.

As a result, the University has moved into the top 30 in the UK for Teaching and Research, as well as being ranked 16th in the UK and 91st globally for Citations, which measures research influence. Meanwhile, the University continues to be ranked 8th in the UK for Industry Income.

The annual THE World University Rankings is considered one of the ‘big two’ of worldwide university rankings and is renowned for its competitiveness. This year’s rise in the THE rankings is the University’s second biggest in any one year.

Welcoming the results, University of Aberdeen Senior Vice-Principal, Karl Leydecker, said:

“To rise 20 places in the THE World University Rankings is pleasing, and we are proud to have strengthened our position among the top 200 universities in the world while rising three places, to 22nd in the UK.

“We are also pleased to have been ranked 31st in the world for our International Outlook, an area where we consistently perform very strongly. Our Aberdeen 2040 strategy makes clear our commitment to world-leading teaching and research across borders, underpinned by a range of commitments that highlight our status as a university founded with international connections.

“To have achieved this improvement in our overall position is testament to the hard work and commitment of our entire community and to our clear vision for the future articulated through Aberdeen 2040.

“My sincere thanks go to all our staff and students who have played a part in this success, and for their ongoing efforts which are helping cement our position as a leading global university.”
