Leeds is also positioned 10th in the UK, out of 107 institutions, with an overall score of 88.3 out of 100. 

The inaugural rankings consider research and discovery, employability and outcomes, learning experience, global engagement and sustainability in their scoring. The data used to compile them is extracted from the overall QS rankings. 

Professor Hai-Sui Yu, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said: “We are pleased that our top 15 placing in these rankings reflect our focus on delivering a new curriculum for our students. 

“This recognition vindicates our commitment to collaboration rather than competition to tackle the major challenges of our time. We will continue to offer students an environment where they can help shape a better future for the globe.” 

“The University has an international outlook, building partnerships with researchers, universities and other organisations across the world and these strengths continue to place us alongside other leading universities.” 

The University scored particularly strongly in the International Research Network measure (97.5 out of 100), Employer Reputation (94.5), Sustainability (93.2) and Academic Reputation (92.4), helping place Leeds among the top 3% of European institutions.
