Earlier this week, NTU was ranked 4th in the world among universities aged 50 and below by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
NTU President, Professor Bertil Andersson, said: “It is clear that NTU is a rising young star in higher education. An ambitious university and fast growing, we have strengthened our reputation as a major force in education and research.
“While the methodologies are different, these two new rankings from QS and Times Higher both demonstrate NTU’s rapid growth as a university that is well recognised internationally.
“With NTU’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine that is enrolling its first students from next year, it will enable NTU to further increase recognition in related areas, such as biomedicine and life sciences in the years ahead. NTU is also one of the youngest among the young universities, which means that we have the potential to grow our standing further.”
The Times Higher Education Top 100 Under-50 Ranking draws on the same data used to compile the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, but only ranks those founded in 1962 or later.
The QS Top 50 Under-50 uses a different methodology that surveys the views of academics and employers around the world. The rankings are based on four key pillars: research, teaching, employability and internationalisation.
