BU has made the list of the top 500 universities in the world, according to the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
BU has been listed between 401 and 500 on the list, with only three other UK post-92 institutions making the top 500.
This is the first time that BU has featured in the list, and comes at a time when the university has risen in all three major University league table rankings in the UK, The Guardian University League Table, The Complete University Guide League Table and the Times and Sunday Times rankings.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings lists the best global universities across core areas of teaching, research, knowledge transfer and internationalisation.
The other three UK post-92 universities within the top 500 on the list are Plymouth, Oxford Brookes and Portsmouth.
