ARU Ranked 1st in the UK and 20th in the World for Health and Wellbeing

The Times Higher Education (THE) impact rankings 2022 have ranked Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) top in the UK and 20th in the world for good health and well-being.

The Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings is an annual publication of university rankings by Times Higher Education magazine (THE). Since 2004, THE has been creating university rankings to assess university performance and provide a valuable resource for understanding the different missions and successes of high education institutions. The rankings measure universities’ progress against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including good health & wellbeing, highlighting the real-world impact that institutions have on the communities they serve.

The ranking for good health and well-being is part of the impact rankings which is measured by “universities’ research on key diseases and conditions, their support for healthcare professionals, and the health of students and staff.” Among other things, universities are ranked on their proportion of health graduates to understand how the university is supporting health professions.

The list includes 1,101 universities from 98 countries/regions: with Iran University of Medical Sciences topping the ranking and Australian Catholic University and Taipei Medical University in Taiwan completing the top three. Overall, the UK is the most-represented nation in the top 100.

It goes without saying that the pandemic has left behind a lasting impact on people’s mental and physical health. As such, the significance of good health and wellbeing is being highlighted now more than ever which is why we are so proud to be partnered with a university that has been recognised for its contribution to this. The Impact Rankings are growing rapidly each year as more and more institutions seek to demonstrate their dedication to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
