The University has achieved its highest ranking since 2009 in a respected global league table.

A rise of 26 places saw the University break into the top 200 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The jump to 182nd follows the University’s highest position for five years in the QS World University Rankings earlier this month.

The results also build on the University’s excellent performance in the QS rankings by subject which were published in April.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Riordan said: “It’s gratifying to see us make substantial progress in the Times Higher Education world rankings so soon after a pleasing result in the QS table.

“We are planning major developments over the next few years, not least our £300m innovation campus and new facilities such as the Centre for Student Life, which will keep us moving in the right direction.

“We aim to be a respected global university so it is important to be recognised in the league tables but our focus is always on our core activities of teaching and research.”

Phil Baty, Editor of the THE World University Rankings said: “The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, now in their 12th year, apply rigorous standards, using tough global benchmarks across all of a global research university’s key missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

“The results are trusted by students and their families, academics, university leaders and governments. For Cardiff University to make 182 in the world is an outstanding achievement to be celebrated.”
