The University of Bath has been named the 34th best “young” university in the world.
The Times Higher Education’s 100 Under 50 league table for 2014 ranks universities across the globe in a range of categories, including research, teaching and international outlook.
Bath maintained its ranking of 34, with Pohang University of Science and Technology (Postech) in South Korea coming out top.
The table uses the same range of 30 performance indicators as the World University Rankings, but focuses on universities under the age of 50.
The University of Bath did particularly well in teaching, research and industry scores.
Editor of Times Higher Education rankings Phil Baty said: “The Times Higher Education 100 under 50 is a hot list of the world’s most dynamic and exciting young universities.
“I would like to congratulate the University of Bath on its impressive performance this year, maintaining its strong position among this world elite.”
Professor Colin Grant, Bath’s pro vice chancellor for internationalisation, said: “It is good to hear we have maintained our standing in this very competitive table, and this reflects the hard work over the past 12 months to build strong research-led relationships with partner institutions across the globe.
“I would hope that before we turn 50 in 2016 we will see a further rise in this table with the growing impact of our research and as our international strategy continues to bear fruit.”
