150 best young universities in the world

Switzerland’s École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne has topped the Times Higher Education 150 Under 50 Rankings 2016 – a ranking of the best universities under the age of 50 – for the second year in a row, while the United Kingdom has the most world-class young institutions in the top 150, writes Ellie Bothwell for Times Higher Education.

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne held on to pole position in the table despite fierce competition from universities in East Asia. Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, founded just 25 years ago, came second, making it Asia’s top young institution for the first time in the ranking’s five-year history. This follows Singapore’s success in last year’s Times Higher Education World University Rankings, in which the National University of Singapore was crowned Asia’s best university.

The rest of the top five in the young universities list was filled by Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, the Netherlands’ Maastricht University and South Korea’s Pohang University of Science and Technology in third, fourth and fifth place, respectively.
