University of Texas clenches top 30 ranking among world universities
The University of Texas at Austin has clenched another top ranking among world universities. UT ranked No. 30 in the world in U.S. News & World Report's first ever Global University Rankings, the university announced this week.
The rankings are based on 10 indicators that measure academic research performance and global and regional reputation. In addition to ranking 30th in the world, UT ranked No. 23 among universities in the United States and No. 10 among public universities in the United States.
"This ranking confirms what we see on our campus every day: outstanding faculty teaching world-class students. We say, 'What starts here changes the world.' The world is noticing," said President Bill Powers in a press release.
Indeed, it seems to be a trend. This is the fourth time this year that UT has placed near the top of an international ranking. In July, the University of Texas was ranked No. 29 in the world, according to the Center for World University Rankings.
