Newcastle University ranked 1st in UK by THE Impact Rankings

02 May 2022

Newcastle University has been named the best university in the UK and 8th in the world for impact by the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2022.

The Impact Rankings are the world’s only ranking which measures universities’ contributions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which includes targets such as quality education, gender equality and affordable and clean energy.

In total, 20 UK universities featured in the global top 100 - the most of any nation - including the University of Manchester (9th), University of Glasgow (19th), University of Leicester (23rd) and King's College London (24th).

Professor Chris Day, Vice-Chancellor and President, Newcastle University, said: "We are absolutely delighted to be ranked first in the UK – and eighth in the world - in this year's Times Higher Education Impact Rankings. They represent the very best of what a University can be - working together to respond to urgent global challenges – and our performance today is a testament to the hard work and commitment of all colleagues and students at Newcastle University.

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
