The University of Southampton is one of the top 75 universities in the world, according an international rankings guide published in September 2011.
In the 2011 QS World University League Rankings, Southampton is ranked in 75th place, one of only 17 UK universities in the global elite of 100 higher education institutions. This is the University's highest ranking in the table and the third year in a row that it has improved its position.
The QS rankings are one of only a few internationally recognised indicators of excellence in teaching, research, citations of research, industry reputation and the international mix of students and staff.
Professor Don Nutbeam, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton, says:
"We are delighted to see that we continue to be acknowledged for our world-class performance and placed firmly within the top 100 universities in the world.
"I am particularly pleased that our progress appears to be on the basis of improvements in academic performance in research and international employers opinions of our graduates."
