The University of Exeter has been ranked 93rd in the Times Higher Education University rankings, revealed today.
In an email sent to all students, Sir Steve Smith, Vice Chancellor of the University, spoke of his delight that Exeter has, for the first time, been placed as a global top 100 university.
Previously, Exeter was ranked 154th-meaning the university has risen a mammoth 61 places in a year, competing against some of the best institutions across the world.
In a video, the Vice Chancellor said: “Please don’t think that this means our job is done, and we’ll automatically stay in the top 100. For us, the goal is long term sustainable achievement.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank staff, students and all our supporters for their collective contribution to this exceptional achievement.”
The success follows from the University maintaining its top 10 position in UK league tables for the 2016 academic year.
