UWS has been ranked in the world’s top 150 young universities by Times Higher Education (THE). This year, we have significantly improved our position to reach the top 101-150 in the world, up from the 151-200 division, in THE's Young University Rankings.
The Young University Rankings are for universities established less than 50 years ago, and are designed to demonstrate the impact on the world stage of universities in years, rather than centuries, highlighting future rising stars.
The prestigious table applies the same 13 rigorous performance indicators as the overall THE World University Rankings - with young universities measured across their teaching, research, citations (research influence), international outlook and industry income. However, the methodology has been recalibrated to reflect the special characteristics of younger universities.
The recognition comes as the University prepares to launch its brand new state-of-the-art £110 million campus in Lanarkshire, which opens its doors to all students for the first time in September.
