Oxford Brookes university has been named as the UK's top institution that is less than 50 years old.

The university also moved up to 40th in the world within the rankings and is the only UK university on the list.

Professor Alistair Fitt, Vice-Chancellor, said: "To be recognised as the UK's top university in this latest ranking is a great honour. To achieve such a fantastic accolade for a second year running is an even greater achievement. It demonstrates an unyielding commitment to our students and to ensuring that we provide world-leading teaching, research and support."

"The international reputation of Oxford Brookes is such that when I speak to people from across the globe, they recognise the excellent qualities of this very special institution. I have no doubt that our latest ranking success will only enhance this."

The award follows on from the university being recognised as the top UK university for both teaching and research in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2018.

Meanwhile, Oxford Brookes also climbed nine places in the Guardian University Guide and in April was ranked in the top 20 institutions in the UK for ten subject areas in The Complete University Guide 2018.
