Teesside University has been recognised among the world’s top higher education institutions for the second year running.

The University has again been included in the 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, released this week (5 September).

Teesside was recognised for the quality of its teaching and the wide-reaching impact of its research.

Professor Paul Croney, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, said: “Teesside University is delighted to once again be listed among the world’s top universities.

“Our vision is to be an international university with a reputation for academic excellence and this result is recognition of all the tremendous work being undertaken at Teesside to transform our university.

“We are constantly striving to provide an outstanding student and learning experience, so to be listed in the 2018 Times Higher World University Rankings for the second year running is an achievement that our students and staff can be extremely proud of.”

This latest international ranking comes after Teesside University was one of only a handful of UK institutions shortlisted for the very first Global Teaching Excellence Awards (GTEA), which recognise outstanding leadership, teaching and student support.

The University was shortlisted alongside finalists from Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa and Canada for the award, run in partnership between the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and Times Higher Education.

Teesside University was also recently awarded a silver rating in the Government’s new Teaching Excellence Framework. As a result, it was rated 60th in the Times Higher Education rankings, one of the highest performing TEF Silver institutions in the country.

In the 2018 Guardian University Guide, Teesside University moved up 23 places, one of the highest climbers this year. This was thanks to a number of improved metrics, including student employability statistics and continued investment in student resources.
