The University has also significantly improved its scores in the ‘engagement’ and ‘outcome’ categories of the Times Higher Education Europe Teaching Rankings for 2019, where it has maintained its overall position in the 201+ group from last year.
The recognition follows recent news that UWS also jumped eight places in The Guardian University Guide rankings for 2020, another trusted and independent source of rankings for UK universities.
Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal & Vice-Chancellor at UWS, said: “I am immensely proud of the recognition UWS is gaining in these highly prestigious higher education league tables.
“We are particularly pleased to see that we continue to rank as the top Scottish university in the THE Young University Rankings, which also sees us ranked joint 4th in the UK this year. These achievements are testament to the dedication of our staff and our internationally-recognised research capabilities, which are having a real and tangible influence, both in our local communities, and on the world stage."
