TCD is only Irish University listed in THES World University Rankings

Posted on: 04 November 2004

Trinity College Dublin is the highest ranking Irish university to feature in the top 200 universities in the recently published Times Higher Education Supplement’s world university rankings. The College was ranked 87th in the world. The THES world university rankings lists the world’s top 200 universities measured on peer review; number of citations per faculty member; ratio of students to staff; and the number of international students and staff. Harvard University was the highest ranking institution, while Oxford and Cambridge Universities were ranked fifth and sixth respectively. The Dean of Research, Prof. Ian Robertson, said that this ranking endorses the fact that Trinity is Ireland’s leading research university and there should be a strong sense of pride that the College has achieved this place in the context of the historically and internationally low levels of resourcing. It is a tribute to the talent, scholarship and hard work of all staff and students, he added.
