The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions, including:

  • Teaching
  • Research environment
  • Research quality
  • International outlook

This ranking recognises the breadth and impact our research has in society, business, and policy globally. Some of our research highlights include an investigation into the rise of cash earnings of oil company shareholders, various projects looking into Cloud Computing and its challenges, ongoing work into access to care for women from ethnic minority and migrant groups, and research into the role of IP in COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing and supply.

It also comes off the back of an incredible year of successes for our staff and students. Dafni Eirini Melitsi became the second Queen Mary student to win the Maritime Master’s Competition. We also had exceptional George Hinde Moot Competition for our undergraduate students. Professor Julia Hörnle was shortlisted by the THE for Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year and won two awards from Queen Mary for teaching and research. Ian Yates was also awarded the prestigious Queen Mary Medal for his contribution to the School of Law and Queen Mary.

Professor Ioannis Kokkoris, Director of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, and Professor Michael Harker, Head of the Department of Law, said: “We are thrilled with the results of the THE rankings. They are a clear testament to the excellence our staff, and their teaching and research. We will continue to be one of the leading law schools globally, and work with our local and international partners to make a positive social, cultural, and economic impact.”
