UCLan’s global ranking success

The University of Central Lancashire’s (UCLan) international reputation has been enhanced after it entered a global rating for the first time in its history.

The institution has been named on U-Multirank, an online system that compares 1,500 universities from across the world.

U-Multirank compares universities against five main strands: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement. Subsections within each area are then given a grade between A, for very good, to E, for weak.

UCLan was awarded an ‘A’ grade in six areas. They were:
– Bachelor graduation rate
– Graduating on time (bachelors)
– Graduate companies (the number of companies newly founded by graduates per 1,000 graduates)
– International academic staff (academic staff with foreign citizenship)
– International doctorate degrees (doctorate degrees awarded to international doctorate candidates)
– Bachelor graduates working in the region (first job after graduation)

Professor Mike Thomas, UCLan Vice-Chancellor, said: “It’s a great achievement that we’ve been recognised by U-Multirank and that we’ve made it on to this global rating system for the first time in our history.

“It shows the progression we are making is being identified on the world stage. This success builds on a fantastic 2016 when we were recognised by a host of global league tables for our development.”

It is the fourth year that U-Multirank has been in existence and this year institutions from 99 countries have featured.

The University’s international recognition comes on the back of a successful 2016 when UCLan was named in the Best Global Universities Rankings for the first time, it bucked the UK trend and held its position in the QS World Rankings and it was named in the top 3.7% of all worldwide universities in the Complete World University Rankings.
