The University of York is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities, according to a new set of rankings published today.
The University is ranked 74th in the QS – Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) rankings, a climb of 50 places since last year. The league ranks the leading 500 of the world’s 40,000 Universities.
