THE University of Portsmouth has again been placed in the top 400 universities in the world by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
The independent rankings place Portsmouth in the top two per cent of universities worldwide and among the best in Europe for the second year running.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Graham Galbraith said: ‘Being placed in the top two per cent of universities worldwide is testament to our hard work and investment over many years.
‘Repeatedly, our passion for teaching, learning and research has been recognised by a host of different league tables.
‘We aim to deliver an excellent experience for students and give them the best possible education and future opportunities. We also strive to be at the cutting edge in research and these rankings prove we are achieving that.’
The World University Rankings are used worldwide by governments and research councils to help determine funding decisions.
International ranking and reputation is also the most influential factor for prospective students and their parents.
