University of Limerick ranks among world’s top 500 universities for the first time

The University of Limerick has ranked among the world’s top 500 universities for the first time.

In the 2024 Times Higher Education World University Rankings, UL ranked between 401 and 500th place, marking a significant improvement on last year’s 601-800 ranking. It is the biggest year-on-year move of the Irish universities included in the annual rankings.

UL President Professor Kerstin Mey said: “Ranking in the top 500 universities in the world is a testament to the unwavering dedication and commitment of our university community in the pursuit of excellence and innovation. Together, we have forged a path of excellence and innovation that propels us forward, shaping a brighter future for all. In doing so, we have achieved a milestone that reflects the power of collective effort and the limitless potential of University of Limerick.

“Improving university world rankings holds immense significance for a research-led institution committed to excellence, innovation, and sustainability. These rankings are not just numbers or symbols of prestige, they reflect a university’s global standing and its impact on society."
