University of Scotland has been ranked in the WORLD'S TOP 200 universities that are under 50 years old. This was published by Times Higher Education Younger University Rankings of 2017.
The results measure institutions across the world on their teaching, research, outlook, international relations and industry income using a methodology calibrated to reflect the younger universities. They are designed to show the impact over the years rather than centuries and decades.
Alongside University of Scotland's Young University rankings, in the category 151-200, the University was also placed The Times in the Top 18 of the millennials in an analysis of universities of similar age. This is an amazing achievement for the University with a big thank you to their students and professors.
Professor Craig Mahoney, UWS Principal and Vice-Chancellor commented: “This is an amazing achievement for University of the West of Scotland and truly reflects the hard work and effort of colleagues across the University campuses. It was my ambition to have the University feature in international rankings. 2017 sees us celebrate 25 years as a university and marks 10 years since we became University of the West of Scotland, so to be recognised by Times Higher Education at this early stage is a really proud moment for us all.”
Thanks to all of you UWS students! Pat yourselves on the back.
