UCT RESEARCH INNOVATION HIGHLIGHTS 2018-19 - Page 39



“It is encouraging to see UCT
demonstrate such excellence
in international rankings,” said
UCT Vice-Chancellor Professor
Mamokgethi Phakeng, “particularly
given the incredibly competitive,
global arena we operate in and the
enormous challenges we face in
terms of declining national funding
and the imperative to transform our
institution.”
This latest ranking means UCT now
leads in Africa in all of the five major
world university rankings: THE,
Quaquarelli Symonds, Centre for
World University Rankings, US News
Best Global Universities Rankings
and the Academic Ranking of World
Universities.
The THE World University
Rankings, published once a year,
assess almost 1 400 institutions
worldwide. To do this, it uses 13
performance indicators grouped
into five areas: teaching (30%),
research (30%), citations (30%),
international outlook (7.5%) and
industry income (2.5%)
