Once again, it is time to talk about academic rankings. After breaking into the 'top 250' in the QS World University Rankings 2022, USI moves up also in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2021, gaining 17 positions and coming in 37th.
The THE Young University Rankings ranks unversities that have been in existence for less than 50 years. The rankings are calculated from the same data as the overall rankings published in 2020. The table is based on the same performance indicators as the flagship Times Higher Education World University Rankings (also known as THE WUR) that measure an institution’s performance across teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. However, the weightings of the indicators have been adjusted best to reflect the profile and mission of young universities.
In the Young University Rankings, Times Higher Education highlights the best universities under the age of 50 by focusing on the research and teaching performance of those universities that, due to their young age, cannot yet have an established reputation such as - for example - Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Princeton.
