QS Top 50 under 50 ranking

UM best young university in Europe

Maastricht University is amongst the best young universities in the world. This year, UM reached 7th place in the QS Top 50 under 50 ranking, climbing one place compared to last year (8). This makes UM the best young European university out of the 18 European universities that have made the top 50. It is the sixth time that this ranking for universities younger than 50 years has been published.

Asian universities dominate the top of the list. Places 1 to 6 are occupied by three universities from Hong Kong, two from South Korea and one from Singapore. Five of the universities in the top six are technical universities. The top 10 contains two other European institutions: the Universitat Autonóma de Barcelona and the University of Antwerp. Both of these universities are part of the Young European Research Universities Network (YERUN), just like UM.

The ’Top 50 under 50’ is a derivative of the QS World University Rankings (WUR) which was published earlier this month. UM obtained the 173rd position in this list, after ranking 169th last year. Please consult this news item for more information.
