The University Otago has maintained its position in the influential Times Higher Education World University Rankings announced today.

Otago is placed in the 201-250 band in the latest Times Higher rankings, maintaining the place it has held for the past two years.

The latest ranking follows an improved placing of 151st (up from 169th) in the 2017 QS World University Rankings, which were announced in June.

The rankings are based on assessments of research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

“Otago’s result confirm its strong position within the top echelon of the top 2-3 per cent of universities worldwide, and as one of New Zealand’s top two universities,” says Professor Helen Nicholson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (External Engagement).
