The East End's Queen Mary University of London has been ranked among the top 100 universities in the world.
The prestigious rating comes in the latest edition of the respected QS World University Rankings, released tonight.
Queen Mary’s, with campuses in Mile End, Whitechapel and the City, has risen almost 50 places in the last two years and is now listed in 98th position globally.
“The improvement in our ranking over the last two years is a tremendous achievement,” Principal Prof Simon Gaskell said. “It is evidence of Queen Mary’s increasingly prominent role in global academia, and a sign of being a destination for the very best students, teachers and leading researchers from across the world.”
QM is rated particularly highly for the number of international students and staff on campus who come from 150 countries. It is ranked as the world’s 25th “most international” university for students.
The university is also ranked 19th among UK institutions and 10th in the UK for both research impact and staff-to-student ratio.
The QS World University Rankings are based on 90,000 survey responses looking at 3,000 universities.
