Professor Stuart Croft, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Warwick, said: “These rankings from the Times confirm what we know – that Warwick is a innovative, modern university and among the best in the country.

“Warwick’s high ranking in subjects across both the humanities and the sciences is a testament to the skill and passion of our community across a range of subjects.

“This position doesn’t happen by itself however, and we are very proud of the work put in by our staff and students to achieve this.”
