University named as one of world’s most international

19 January

The University of Hull has been named as one of the world’s most international universities.

It is placed 157th in the Times Higher Education top 200, the most comprehensive global university rankings in the world.

To compile the rankings, The Times Higher looked at the International Outlook indicator of the top 800 universities from its overall World Rankings, released last September, which placed the University of Hull in the top 3 per cent globally.

The indicator looked at each institution’s proportion of international staff, proportion of international students and proportion of research papers published with at least one co-author from another country.

Professor Calie Pistorius, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hull, said:

To be recognised as one of the most international universities in the world is immensely pleasing.
We are extremely proud of our diverse student and staff body here at the University of Hull and the strength of our international outlook continues to help us attract some of the highest quality staff and students to the University.
We are extremely pleased this latest global recognition also recognises the University’s considerable strength in international-level research.

A spokesman for The Times Higher Education, said:

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.
