Exeter Rises in World University Rankings

Exeter University is one of the top 200 universities in the world.

That's according to the largest and most extensive international league table, the QS World University Rankings.

The league table ranks the University of Exeter 182nd out of 2,500 universities – up from 207th place last year.

The university, which is now one of the prestigious Russell Group has students from 130 different countries and staff of 50 different nationalities. It has over 18,000 students. 

It's opening more than £350 million worth of new facilities across its campuses for 2012, including landmark new student services centres - the Forum in Exeter and The Exchange in Cornwall - and world-class new facilities for Biosciences, the Business School and the Environment and Sustainability Institute.

It's ranked 9th in The Sunday Times University Guide, 10th in the UK in The Times Good University Guide 2012 and 10th in the Guardian University Guide

2012 is the ninth year that QS has published its World University Rankings. They are based on six indicators and were this year compiled following surveys of over 46,000 academics and 28,000 employers. The QS World Rankings score universities on several factors, including the number of citations academics receive in journal papers.
