UBC 25th in Global Ranking

The University of British Columbia now ranks 25th among the world’s top 100 universities, according to the 2012 Times Higher Education Reputation Rankings.

In the world’s largest academic opinion survey released today in London, UK, UBC jumps from last year’s 31st to 25th rank. The 2012 Reputation Rankings are based on a survey of academic opinion, featuring 17,554 respondents from 137 countries.

These reputational results complement the Times Higher Education’s annual World University Rankings, which came out last fall and ranked UBC 22nd out of 400 institutions.

The invitation-only survey is carried out by Ipsos. In the two years it has been running, the survey has attracted almost 31,000 responses from senior, published scholars from 149 countries, providing a rich and unique insight into how academic prestige is perceived around the globe.

Only 100 universities are listed in the World Reputation Rankings – equal to 0.5 per cent of the world’s higher education institutions.
