UM ranked as world’s fifth best young university
Maastricht University (UM) has come fifth in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings. The prestigious magazine ranks 250 international universities aged 50 years or under according to 13 performance indicators, which fall in the categories teaching, research, citations, international outlook, and industry income.
