UT among top universities in the world, according to two new rankings
The University of Texas at Austin is ranking as one of the best schools in the world, according to two new rankings.
UT was named 31st by the Center for World University Rankings.
Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings lists the school as the 36th best in the world.
It makes both lists as the eighth best public university in the world.
"These rankings are further validation of what we already know - our students receive a world-class education grounded in the breadth and depth of the research and scholarship happening across UT Austin. I am thrilled to see the accomplishments of our faculty, researchers and students acknowledged in these rankings," said Maurie McInnis, executive vice president and provost at UT Austin.
Only three other Texas schools made the lists, all behind UT.
