UCLA placed eighth in the London Times Higher Education 2013 World Reputation Rankings, which orders schools according to international prestige.

The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings are created using the world's largest invitation-only survey of academic opinion - a truly unique piece of research. The Academic Reputation Survey, available in 10 languages, uses United Nations data to ensure that it is-properly distributed to reflect the demographics of world scholarship. It is also evenly spread across academic disciplines.

Those invited to take part are statistically representative of both their country and their discipline.
 
The questionnaire, administered by polling company Ipsos MediaCT for THE's rankings data supplier Thomson Reuters, targets only experienced, published scholars, who offer their views on excellence in research and teaching within their disciplines and at institutions with which they are familiar.
 
The 2013 rankings are based on a survey carried out in March and April 2012, which received 16,639 responses from 144 countries. When polled, the respondents on average had been working in the academy for 17 years."
