UWS celebrated in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2017

18 Apr 2017

UWS has been ranked in the world’s top 200 universities under 50 years of age in today’s Times Higher Education [THE] Young University Rankings 2017.

The Young University Rankings measure institutions across the world on their teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income using a methodology calibrated to reflect the characteristics of younger universities.

Alongside UWS’s Young University ranking, in the category 151-200, the University was also placed by THE in the Top 18 of the Millennials in an analysis of universities of a similar age – a rating reflecting the significant growth and achievements of UWS over recent years.

The THE Young University Rankings, are designed to show the impact on the world stage of universities in years rather than centuries and to highlight future rising stars.

Professor Craig Mahoney, UWS Principal and Vice-Chancellor commented: “This is an amazing achievement for University of the West of Scotland and truly reflects the hard work and effort of colleagues across the University campuses and the tremendous input from our partners and stakeholders.
“When I was interviewed for my post at UWS, I said that it was my ambition to have the University feature in international rankings. 2017 sees us celebrate 25 years as a university and marks 10 years since we became University of the West of Scotland, so to be recognised by THE at this early stage is a really proud moment for us all.”
