UCLA was ranked the No. 14 best university in the world by the U.S. News & World Report.
U.S. News & World Report evaluated universities based on 13 indicators, including their academic research and global reputation. Measurements factored in each university’s number of research publications and level of international collaboration.
UCLA ranked No. 7 for global research reputation, No. 14 for citations and No. 19 for publications. In subject rankings, UCLA ranked No. 6 for oncology, No. 10 for psychiatry/psychology and No. 10 for cell biology.
The global rankings follow a previous U.S. News & World Report ranking in September, which named UCLA as the best public university in the country. UCLA Health was also ranked the No. 1 hospital system in California in July.
Three other University of California schools – UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco and UC San Diego – placed in the top 25 global universities.
