Brunel University and Imperial College have made the Times Higher Education (THE) list of the 25 most international universities in the world.
Brunel is in the list at no.15, with Imperial at no.6. They are among just UK institutions to make the top 25. The list was compiled using the ‘international outlook’ indicator of the THE’s world ranking of universities, which is calculated using a university’s international student numbers, its percentages of international staff and the proportion of its research papers published with a co-author from at least one country.
Brunel Vice Principal (Education and International) Andrew George, responded to the survey, saying: “This result is a reflection of the huge importance that Brunel University places on internationalisation, and the diversity of our students and staff which brings so much to our campus community. This awareness of our strength in this area provides a clear platform for our future plans for growth and development of key international partnerships in the next few years.”
Brunel University has staff and students from over 100 countries represented on its campus, with annual events like One World Week highlighting the global diversity of our students.
