Heriot Watt University

 

Introduction:

Heriot-Watt's global status has been underlined by our highest ever ranking in the QS World University Ranking rising to 318th in the world, up from 352 last year. This is Heriot-Watt's highest position to date in any international ranking, and particularly pleasing in a league table which is itself becoming increasingly prominent. The leap in the University's ranking relates to measurable improvements in the University's performance and is also influenced by changes in QS weighting and methodologies.

Professor Julian Jones, Vice-Principal, said, "This is a tremendous result for Heriot-Watt as a global player, and reflects the efforts of colleagues at all levels of the University, in the UK and abroad."

The University was also ranked in the world's top ten for our proportion of international students, with Imperial College, the London School of Economics and St Andrews, and is top in Scotland and in the UK top ten for our proportion of international faculty.
