Trinity rises in Times Higher Education global rankings

Posted on: 02 September 2020

Trinity College Dublin has risen nine places as Ireland’s leading university in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings. 

Trinity has risen to 155th in the 2021 rankings, up from 164th 

 This year’s result was helped by a strong performance in research (one of the main categories on which the overall score is based).

Dean of Research at Trinity, Professor Linda Doyle, said: 

 We are delighted to see Trinity College Dublin improving its position in this global metric.   

Excellence in research lies at the heart of our identity as a university and has a fundamental influence on our teaching.  
This speaks to the quality of our researchers, who are excelling in difficult times in which funding is harder to come by than ever.  

The THE performance indicators are grouped into five areas: Teaching; Research; Citations; International outlook; and Industry income.
