For the first time St George’s, University of London, has been ranked as one of the top 200 universities in the world in a new authoritative survey by the Times Higher Education magazine. In the World University Rankings 2014 – 2015, St George’s has been placed at 196th globally. Last year the university was placed in the 201- 225 bracket without an individual placing.

It is the 11th time the Times Higher Education’s annual rankings have been published. It focuses on truly global institutions with both influence in leading research and outstanding teaching.

Professor Peter Kopelman, the university’s Principal, said: “This is excellent news for St George’s, its staff and its students. It is no mean feat for a smaller, specialist, university to be ranked in the top 200 World Universities and it confirms the standing that we have established in the global community. This is an achievement that we should promote with pride.”
