Sussex ranks in world's top 150 universities for 8th year running

Sussex THE rankings

The University of Sussex has earned a spot within the world’s top 150 universities for the eighth year in a row, coming in at 147th on the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018.

“This sends out a strong message to the world that Sussex is a truly global institution,” said Adam Tickell, University of Sussex Vice-Chancellor. “To stay in the world’s top 150 for so long is a fantastic achievement and is testament to our consistently excellent teaching and research. Congratulations to all our staff for the part you have played.”

This shows further improvement on last year’s already impressive rankings, as the University has gained two places on the most recent list.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings lists the top 1,000 universities in the world, and this year’s table was the largest international league table to date. It’s the only global university performance table that looks at all of the core missions of research-intensive universities around the world, which includes teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

The University of Sussex also ranked very highly for international outlook, ranking in the top 10 percent thanks to the global reach of the research completed on campus, as well as the large number of international students and staff.
