Warwick University ranked fourth in Europe

The new Times Higher Education Teaching Rankings 2018, which collects data relating to 242 institutions across Europe, has announced that the University of Warwick ranks fourth across the whole of Europe, with only Oxford, Cambridge and the Sorbonne ahead.

The survey is based on data collated by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), and is described as the “first international university ranking to be focused entirely on teaching and learning.”

Professor Stuart Croft, pro-vice chancellor of Warwick University, said:”As I have said before it is not just today but everyday that I hear stories and testimony of how Warwick staff and students are working together to share in Warwick’s exceptional teaching and learning experience. I wish once again to thank everyone who helps makes teaching at Warwick an experience that is so treasured and valued. I am delighted that this ranking shows that your work is winning recognition not just in the UK, but across Europe.”

The editorial director of of global rankings at the Times Higher Education, Phil Baty, added: “While teaching is perhaps the single most important mission of any university, no other international ranking focuses entirely on teaching and learning, placing student needs at its very heart. This initiative is an important world first, offering a much needed fresh perspective on excellence in higher education. The University of Warwick does particularly well in our ‘outcomes’ score, for successful student progress – but also does very well in our student engagement survey, demonstrating that its students feel stretched, challenged and stimulated by their courses.”
