UK-based Times Higher Education (THE), one of the most reputable publishers of the worldwide university rankings, announced “The World’s Best Young Universities Rankings 2018” (also known as ‘Under 50 Rankings’), featuring the list of the world’s best universities under the age of 50. In the said rankings, Eastern Mediterranean University has once again achieved remarkable success after having been ranked within the 101-150 band. It is worth mentioning that Eastern Mediterranean University is the only university from the TRNC appearing on the said list.
The Times Higher Education ‘Under 50 Rankings’ applies the same performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments. The performance indicators are grouped into five areas, namely, teaching quality, scientific research, citations, international outlook and income from the industry.
As it has formerly been announced, EMU has the quality of being the only university from the TRNC qualifying for the 601-800 band in the Times Higher Education 2017-2018 Academic Year World University Rankings, which features 1100 universities amongst more than 25,000 institutions.
During the former year, EMU ranked within the 151-200 band of Times Higher Education’s Young University Rankings. Jumping from the 151-200 band to the 101-150 band this year, EMU has once again proven that the university’s success is not coincidental. With this remarkable achievement, EMU ranks fourth amongst the Turkish universities.
