Sussex ranked in world top 20 of Times Higher Education Golden Age universities
This week’s Times Higher Education Young University Rankings sees the University of Sussex ranked 16th in a list of 200 institutions founded in the 20 years between 1945 and 1966.
Referred to as the ‘Golden Age’ of university creation, the period was characterised by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research.
The Golden Age analysis - published on 5 April - applies the same 13 performance indicators as the overall Times Higher Education World University Rankings, with universities measured on their teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
In September 2016, Sussex was ranked 149th out of the top 980 universities in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2017. The University retained its top-150 position for the seventh successive year.
Sussex performed particularly well for its international outlook and its research influence, leaping to the world’s top 10 per cent for these categories. Read the rankings in full on the Times Higher Education website.
