Best Global Universities

Posted on


UCLA is ranked #6 in chemistry and #10 in biology/biochemistry in the recently released 2016 US News and World Report Best Global Universities rankings.

UCLA is ranked #8 in the world and the #2 public institution in the United States. The survey ranked 750 universities from 57 nations using 12 weighted indicators to measure each university’s research performance.  

The U.S. News Best Global Universities rankings were produced to provide insight into how universities compare globally. As an increasing number of students are planning to enroll in universities outside of their own country, the Best Global Universities rankings – which focus specifically on schools’ academic research and reputation overall and not their separate undergraduate or graduate programs – can help those students accurately compare institutions around the world.


The new global rankings follow the publication’s recent release of its annual rankings of the nation’s best colleges and universities. In that report, UCLA ranked No. 2 among the nation’s best public universities and tied for No. 23 overall.
