The University of Hertfordshire has been designated the 575th place of over 27,000 universities worldwide and 42nd in the UK by the CWUR World University Rankings.
CWUR is the largest academic ranking of global universities, and out of 27,770 of their evaluated higher education institutions, we made it into the top 2.1%, meaning our quality of education and training of students, along with the achievements of our researchers and faculty have been recognised as some of the best on offer globally.
What this also means is that we have landed in the top 2% for ‘Quality of Education’, which is influenced by our alumni’s achievements, along with a high ranking for ‘Influence’ which reflects an excellent number of research papers appearing in prestigious journals.
Professor Quintin McKellar, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Hertfordshire was quoted as saying:
“This is an outstanding achievement and well-deserved recognition of the University as a global player. I’m particularly pleased to see an acknowledgment of the achievements of our alumni, impact of our research and quality of our academics. This ranking is a testament to everyone at Hertfordshire who has worked tirelessly to distinguish ourselves internationally.”
