WARWICK UNIVERSITY has received another accolade after being named as one of the world’s top 50 universities.

The Coventry-based university was ranked 48th in the QS annual World University Rankings table – a rise of 13 places on last year.

The latest ranking follows a year of success for the university after QS ranked 10 subjects at Warwick to be in the world’s top 50 and a total of 15 to be in the top 100 in April.

Earlier this year the Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities placed Warwick 92nd, a rise of 96 places, and named the University 13th in the world for Mathematics and 34th for Economics and Business.

Commenting on the success, University of Warwick’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Nigel Thrift, said: “The University of Warwick’s placing in the top 50 universities in the world is a clear demonstration of the global renown for our dedication to research and academic excellence, ground-breaking international collaborations and attracting the highest standard staff and students from around the globe.

“As we continue to celebrate our 50th anniversary the QS ranking is a fitting tribute to the work of Warwick staff and students that has underpinned our success.”
