The QS World University Ranking of Top 50 Universities under 50 years old
Warwick, in third place, breaks up the Asian domination. Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) is the only Malaysian university in the ranking at number 23.
International employment and education consultants QS, analysed data for the ‘young’ universities including their academic record and their reputation with firms and students.
Top of the overall list is the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology followed by
Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University with Warwick in third. Hong Kong Polytechnic University where EduSpiral Consultant Services is an official representative, is ranked at 9th placing.
Two more technology centres in Korea and one in Japan are also in the top ten, showing where the balance of power is heading, said QS experts.
Lancaster University is tenth in the list and only one American centre, The University of California, Irvine (UCI) makes the top 20.
Australia, with nine, is the only single country with more establishments in the 50 than Britain’s impressive standing.
Ben Sowter, head of the QS Intelligence Unit, said: ‘Asian higher education is
undergoing a rapid transformation, and Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Korea are at the forefront of the assault on the global academic elite.
‘There are already 17 per cent more Asian universities in the Top 200 of the QS World University Rankings since the recession, and the next two decades could see leading US and European universities objectively overtaken.’
Europe still holds its own in the list, with 24 of the 50 but there are just four from North America.
And new universities also hold their own against their more established rivals as all 50 institutions are also in the global top 350 of all universities compiled by QS.
