King's named one of world's most international universities

Posted on 14/01/2016

King’s has been placed 20th in the Times Higher Education Most International Universities 2016 Rankings. The ranking, which takes into account each institution’s proportion of international staff, international students and research papers published with at least one co–author from another country.

Dr Joanna Newman, King's Vice-Principal (International) said,

‘This result is testament to how,  at King’s, our cross-boundary, multi-disciplinary collaboration with the best international partners is helping us to finding answers to the global questions in health, sustainability, culture and identity, and defence and security. Our connection and engagement with the world’s emerging powers and economies is what makes us a thought-leader in numerous fields.

By attracting the best international minds, both to our staff and student communities, we are encouraging innovative thinking and nurturing global citizens. We hope to build on this success in the year to come.’

Phil Baty, Times Higher Education World University Rankings Editor said, 

‘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. All institutions in this list deserve to celebrate – being named one of the most international universities in the world is a sign of great potential, competitiveness and dynamism.’
