Robert Kennedy College takes immense pride to share a recent development in the university rankings world. Our exclusive partner – the University of Cumbria – has been ranked 8th in the world by Times Higher Education. The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The ranking uses 3 calibrated indicators: research, outreach and stewardship to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons.
At its heart, the UN has 17 Sustainable Development Goals that call for an urgent action by countries –developed and developing – for global partnership. Sustainable Development Goal 4 stands for Quality Education i.e. ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Despite the considerable progress on education access and participation over the past years, 262 million children and youth aged 6 to 17 were still out of school in 2017, and more than half of children and adolescents are not meeting minimum proficiency standards in reading and mathematics.https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdg4
The Times Higher Education Ranking on SDG 4 – quality education – measures universities’ contribution to early years and lifelong learning, their pedagogy research and their commitment to inclusive education. This second edition includes 766 universities from 85 countries. Metrics and the percentage weightings given to each metric for arriving at the ranking are as follows:
- Research on early years and lifelong learning education (27%)
- Proportion of graduates with teaching qualification (15.4%)
- Lifelong learning measures (26.8%)
- Proportion of first-generation students (30.8%)
There couldn’t have been a better timing for this impressive ranking to be announced, as we also announce that the University of Cumbria Online MBAs are now being offered 100% online. Yes, you read that right! Now you can study and receive British government approved, Swiss quality education – all 100% Online. This is, however, a limited time offer.

Does the Kennedy family support either financially or otherwise this University.
Happy New Year!
Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, we do not offer scholarships; however, we allow our students to pay their fees in interest-free monthly instalments. Please get in touch with our team of admission advisers on WhatsApp, who can have a look at your profile and give you some advice.
This is the best university (UOC)/RKC because recieving education in the classrooms can be regarded as very old or too traditional type of learning pedagogy.Robert Kennedy’s /UOC’s way of outteaching to students can be regarded as very friendly and humanistic and make so many people equally skillful and knowledgable. Congratulations and continue the very good effort.
Hi Kapa, Thank you.
