The Rankings also place Queen Mary at 14th position in the UK, up from 145th globally and 21st in the UK last year.
Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary is rated 8th in the country and 57th in the world for health subjects.
The latest THE ranking follows the QS World University Rankings 2013/14, released in September, which placed Queen Mary in 115th position globally - a rise of 32 places in one year.
