Middlesex soars into top 500 in THE World University Rankings

University is now only modern London institution to be listed in top 500

Middlesex University is now one of the top 500 universities in the world, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. It is also the only modern university in London to feature in the top 500.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the world’s most comprehensive and balanced university performance benchmarks, covering all core areas of a university’s performance: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

An international success

Middlesex’s international outlook was one of the biggest factors propelling the University up in the rankings.

Professor Tim Blackman, Vice-Chancellor at Middlesex University, is proud of the institution's international status.

“Middlesex University is one of the most diverse, multi-national and multi-cultural universities in the UK, welcoming 145 different nationalities to our campuses in London, Malta, Dubai and Mauritius, alumni from 173 countries - and operating with partners in 34 countries across the globe.

“Wherever our students come from, Middlesex University takes pride in transforming their lives, providing practical, innovative teaching so that our graduates are prepared to take on the jobs of the future and continue to make significant contributions to the UK and worldwide economies.”

“We are delighted to be listed among the world’s best universities, and particularly pleased with our position in London,” Professor Tim Blackman, Middlesex University Vice-Chancellor

A global outlook

Journalism graduate Ludovica Uggeri says the international environment at Middlesex was one of the best things about her degree.

“Studying journalism at Middlesex opened up my world” she says.

“It gave me a global outlook on my career, and learning alongside people from all over the world helped me to find different ways to approach problems.

“Diversity in study and in the wider workplace are essential if we are to be globally connected and competitive - and Middlesex really understands this through the way it welcomes, nurtures, integrates and transforms all its students.”

Middlesex University moved from the top 600 in the 2017 academic year into the top 500 for 2018 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
