The Times Higher Education has placed the University of California, San Diego as the 34th top university in the publication’s World Reputation Rankings. UC San Diego moved up two spots from 36th last year in the annual rankings.

“It is an honor for UC San Diego to be recognized as a world leader of academic excellence,” said UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla. “This global ranking is a strong testament to UC San Diego’s exceptional education and research. Here, students have the opportunity to work closely with brilliant faculty, including Nobel laureates, interact with top scholars and pursue endless opportunities for personal and intellectual development.”

The 2013 Reputation Rankings are based on a survey of academic opinion, featuring 48,000 responses from senior, published scholars, which provide a rich and unique insight into the academic prestige of universities across the globe, according to the Times Higher Education.

Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education said, “The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings have rapidly become established as the global index of academic prestige. With only the top 100 university brands featured in the list, those ranked are in a truly elite group.”

The Reputation Rankings complement the Times’ annual World University Rankings, published in fall 2012, in which UC San Diego was ranked 38th.
