The University of East Anglia (UEA) has been placed 23rd in the world in the 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) Golden Age University rankings .
The rankings cover universities established in the two decades between 1945 and 1967, with 200 institutions from 44 different countries in the mix.
Now in its second year, the table applies the same 13 performance indicators as the overall THE World University Rankings - with universities measured across their teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
The UEA welcomed its first cohort of 87 students in 1963, and is now home to around 17,000 students.
Prof David Richardson, UEA vice-chancellor, said: “To be recognised so highly on a global scale, against similarly-aged universities, is a tremendous achievement for the university. We celebrated 50 years of providing high-quality teaching and research in 2013, and we look forward to another 50 years of success.”
