Heriot-Watt rises in world rankings



Heriot-Watt has climbed to its joint highest position in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The University has risen into the world grouping of 301-350, up from last year when it was ranked in the 351-400 grouping.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings use 13 performance indicators to examine universities across all of their core missions– teaching, research, citations, industry and international outlook.

It is the latest accolade for the University, which last week was named as best in Scotland, in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019, for graduate salaries six-months after graduation.

Professor Richard A. Williams, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Heriot-Watt University, said: “The continued recognition of our research across a range of disciplines reflects the growth in the scale of our research activity. Our research enriches our student education programmes with contemporary knowledge and frontier innovations."
