LSE climbs World University Rankings

the-world-university-rankings-logoLSE has climbed seven places in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings.  

The School rose from 39th last year to 32nd in the 2013-14 rankings, the third successive rise since the Times Higher Education teamed up with Thomson Reuters in 2010 to produce its annual university league table.

The rankings use a variety of indicators to assess university performance and show LSE scoring particularly well for its research, reputation, and international outlook.

LSE also rose from 18th to 13th in the ranking’s social sciences subject league table, which uses slightly different weightings to the main league table.

Commenting on the rankings, Professor Craig Calhoun, Director of LSE said:

“It is gratifying to see LSE climbing the international rankings, and that we continue to be rightly recognised as a world-class institution. 

Regardless of league table positions, we will continue to focus on what we do best – producing the very best social science research and teaching that tackles real-world problems.”
