The University of Leicester has been ranked amongst the leading international universities in the world.

The Times Higher Education top 200 list of the most international universities has placed Leicester among the top 100 in the world at 72.

A spokesperson for the THE said: “All institutions in the top 800 of the ranking have been considered. This makes the inclusion of University of Leicester in the list of the top 200 most international universities a significant achievement.

“Your international outlook helps you attract the very highest calibre of staff and students. Both the diversity of a university’s student body and the extent to which its academics collaborate with international colleagues are signs of how global an institution really is, and these factors are among the 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that allow Times Higher Education to produce the most comprehensive global university rankings in the world.

“An institution’s global outlook is one of the key markers of a prestigious university. The top institutions hire faculty from all over the world, attract students from a global market of top talent and collaborate with leading departments wherever they happen to be based.

“It is great news for all the institutions in the list of the most international universities in the world. It is a sign of great potential, competitiveness and dynamism.”

Last year the THE World University Rankings 2015-16 saw the University of Leicester climb 32 places to 167 – placing Leicester firmly among the top 1 per cent of universities in the world.

Dr Tracy Carlton, Director of Marketing & Student Recruitment, said: “We are delighted that Leicester’s international credentials have helped us achieve a top 100 ranking in the world. The Times Higher has also recognised us among the top 1% of universities. It is pleasing to see that we continue to be recognised among the country’s leading institutions."

The full list of the most international universities will be published on 14 January 2016 at 00:01 GMT: https://www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings/worlds-most-international-universities-2016
