The University has been listed for the first time in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings released today (22 September 2016). The rankings recognise the University as being among the world’s top 10% of higher education institutions.

Professor Paul Croney, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of Teesside University, said: 'A key part of our mission for Teesside University is to be an international university with a reputation for academic excellence.

'We are constantly working to provide an outstanding student and learning experience underpinned by research, enterprise and the professions.

'We are delighted that our work in this regard has been rewarded and we have been recognised as one of the top 800 universities in the world.'

This latest accolade comes after the most recent International Student Barometer (ISB) found that Teesside University was ranked first in the world for personal tutors and third globally for overall satisfaction by its international students. The majority of Teesside’s research is also recognised as being ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally-excellent’ in the UK’s Research Evaluation Framework (REF).

Teesside University, which has offices in China and Malaysia and is opening a new office in Gurgaon in India next month, has a strong international community on its campus and attracts students from more than 100 different countries. In recent years, more than £260 million has been spent on upgrades to the campus, including the award-winning £30million Campus Heart scheme which opened in 2015.

The University has an outstanding reputation for academic and research excellence. The School of Computing, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, has been ranked as one of the top 20 animation schools in the world.

The University has also launched a formal partnership with Middlesbrough FC, which will see the two organisations work together to promote the education and business expertise for which the University is renowned to national and international audiences, as well as the ambition and sporting excellence of the football club.
