Published on: 12 October 2022

Newcastle University has moved up in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for the third consecutive year and is now positioned 139th globally.

This latest ranking, which places Newcastle in the UK’s top 20, represents an improvement of seven places from last year’s guide. It is the University’s highest ever position in the influential guide and the University has risen more than 60 places over the last five years.

Newcastle University achieved strong results in several of the indicators that Times Higher Education uses to compile the ranking, including Citations (ranked 77th globally) and International Outlook (139th).

Professor Chris Day, Vice-Chancellor and President at Newcastle University, said: “This sustained performance in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings is a remarkable achievement that makes us all very proud. It signals the quality and impact of our teaching and research, and reflects the passion, hard work and dedication of all University colleagues, our students and our partners.”

The University continues to perform strongly in global league tables. Its ongoing work towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) was recognised in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2022, which placed Newcastle University first in the UK and eighth in the world.

The same publication has shortlisted Newcastle University for the prestigious Times Higher Education University of the Year award in recognition of its commitment to Environmental and Social Justice.

Earlier in the year, the institution achieved its highest ever position, ranking 122nd in the QS World University Rankings 2023, representing a rise of 12 places year-on-year. The move means that Newcastle University is ranked in the top 20 in the UK.
