Our fantastic performance in this year’s Times Higher Education Impact Rankings speaks to our achievements in these areas and is testimony to the hard work of everyone at the University who has contributed to this success.”

The THE Impact Rankings are based on the universities’ impact on society and how successful they are in delivering the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
