Nanyang Technological University has been named the world’s best young university by international education consultancy Quacquarelli Symonds.
This marks the seventh consecutive year that NTU has achieved a top 50 ranking by QS in its league table.
The Times Higher Education has also placed NTU admirably, just under the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
NTU president Subra Suresh said: “(Today), we see that young Asian universities, such as NTU Singapore, are punching above their weight in creating new knowledge and technologies and in benefiting society.”
The QS Top 50 Under 50 ranking applies the same methodology used in its world rankings based on six indicators: academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty member, faculty/student ratio, international faculty ratio and international student ratio.
THE’s Young University Ranking compares universities below 50 years of age, based on research, teaching, citations, international outlook and industry income.
