Middlesex University has been named in the top four per cent of the world's universities after making it into the QS World University Rankings for the first time this year.
The global league table, which was established in 2004, ranks more than 2000 international institutions each year and published its annual results on 10 September 2013.
Only 800 universities made it into the final listing of top universities after being judged against criteria such as academic reputation, employer reputation, student- teacher ratio and proportion of international students.
Of all universities assessed by QS, Middlesex was ranked between 651 and 700, placing it in the top four per cent.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Waqar Ahmad said: "Our inclusion in the QS World Rankings is great news and shows clear progress towards the ambitious targets we have set ourselves.
"In the next two years I expect us to rise even higher in the rankings to sit within the top 500 global institutions."
