Kent in top 100 global rankings for ‘international outlook’


By Matthew Seary

The Times Higher Education table has positioned the University of Kent at 66th out of 800 global institutions. This placed Kent in the ‘top 10% of the world’s leading universities for international outlook’.

On the Times Higher Education website they state:

The international outlook indicator considers each institution’s proportion of international staff, proportion of international students and proportion of research papers published with at least one co-author from another country. All the institutions that feature in the top 800 of the overall 2015-2016 ranking have been considered.

Imperial College London placed the best out of the UK institutions ranking 10th, and the United Kingdom dominates the list as ‘the nation that does the best on this measure overall’

The news comes not long after a continuous stream of good news:

This recent success comes as the University celebrates its 50 year anniversary as an institution of higher education.

The Times & The Sunday Times described Kent’s international outlook as:

…probably the UK’s most active in Europe, both in terms of its participation in EU programmes and in its continental ventures … There are partnerships with over 100 European universities, and 25% of all students are from outside the UK. [with a] student population more diverse than many in the south of England
