The University of Southampton has climbed into the top 100 universities worldwide according to the latest QS World University Rankings.

The global ranking is based on performance indicators focused on excellence in research as well as the University's global reputation amongst fellow Academics and Employers.

The improvement in the QS World University Rankings, follows on from gains made in the Complete University Guide and the Guardian University Guide.

President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Christopher Snowden commented: "Being ranked amongst the world's top 100 universities is an important recognition of the University of Southampton's standing and truly reflective of the success of our corporate strategy in which internationalisation is one of four core principles."

"We truly are a global university with an international perspective and our staff and students are creating a genuine impact around the world through their research, education, enterprise and other activities which have put Southampton firmly on the map."

Earlier in the year, the University placed five subjects in the top 50 in the world in the latest QS World Rankings by Subject, with Nursing ranking the highest in 9th place.
