Surrey voted 43rd for Internationalisation

The University of Surrey has been recognised for its outstanding international focus, achieving 43rd place in the Times Higher Education’s top 200 list of the most international universities in the world. 

Surrey has maintained a top 50 position reflecting the diversity of the University’s student body, the quality of its international academic collaborations and outputs, and its global outlook. 

Commenting on the University of Surrey’s achievement, the Times Higher Education noted, “An institution’s global outlook is one of the key markers of a prestigious university. The top institutions hire faculty from all over the world, attract students from a global market of top talent and collaborate with leading departments wherever they happen to be based. It is great news for all the institutions in the list of the most international universities in the world. It is a sign of great potential, competitiveness and dynamism.” 

Professor Vincent Emery, Pro Vice-Chancellor International, was invited to speak about the University's achievement on BBC Surrey Radio's Drive time show on Thursday 14th January. Commenting on the result, Professor Emery spoke of the competitive nature of national and international rankings, and thus the significance of the achievement for Surrey.
