Manchester top THE University Impact Rankings

4 April 2019

Times Higher Education (THE) have named the University of Manchester as the best higher education institution in Europe – and in the top three globally – for its social and environmental impact.

The UK top five was completed by King's College London, the University of SouthamptonUniversity of Dundee and Newcastle University, with over 450 universities from 76 different countries in total being ranked. 

Dr Julian Skyrme, Director of Social Responsibility at Manchester, said: "Being recognised as Europe’s highest ranking University in this new index – and third in the world overall – is a brilliant reflection of the work of our researchers, teachers, students, professional services and cultural institution staff, enhancing our global reputation as a leader on social responsibility and impact."

The Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings is the world’s first global attempt to document evidence of universities’ impact on society, rather than just research and teaching performance. The ranking shows for the first time how the higher education sector is working towards 11 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, including academic freedom, gender equality and climate change.

 I believe my success is due to the great support provided by SI-UK. I was advised the right IELTS courses to attend and they also helped with my visa application. I really want to share with you my positive experience and I would definitely recommend SI-UK to my friends.
