Vice-chancellor professor Mike Thomas said: “We are delighted to be included in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for the third consecutive year.

“To begin a new academic year on this high note is very encouraging. Although we are very much a civic university with our roots in Lancashire, this table reflects our commitment to boosting the region’s international standing as well as inspiring students to reach their academic potential and conducting high quality research with partners around the globe.”

The university has seen its rankings improve in the Guardian’s 2018 university guide and the Centre for World University Rankings.
