The rankings rate universities on 13 measures. This includes teaching, research and international outlook, which includes the proportion of international research collaborations and the ability of a university to attract students and staff from across the world.
Royal Holloway showed continued success in citations and international outlook, as well as improved scores and ranking for industry income and teaching. The University has successfully held its own, while a number of other UK universities have slipped down the table.
Professor Paul Layzell, Principal of Royal Holloway said: “I am delighted with today’s result, which reflects the high quality of our teaching and research and significant achievements of our staff.
“This confirms our position as one of the world’s best universities, with an outstanding campus and internationally renowned staff collaborating across facilities to enhance health, science, culture and security on a global scale.”
This is the 10th year that the THE has published its annual world rankings.
