EPFL is the best young university
The Times Higher Education 150 Under 50 Rankings ranks the world’s best universities under 50 years old. The ranking features young universities that have created their own niches and demonstrated their impact and relevance. Generally smaller, more open and more flexible, new universities often implement strategies rarely seen at older institutions, e.g. transdisciplinary projects, internationalized research, customized degrees, and performance-based funding. Many perform better in surveys, metrics and awards related to inclusion, teaching capability and learning support. Switzerland’s École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne takes pole position in the 150 Under 50 ranking and the Netherlands’ Maastricht University is fourth, with German, French and UK institutions also performing well. However, institutions in the Asia-Pacific region, especially Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea, dominate the top positions.Read more...
