Bournemouth University has been recognised by the Times Higher Education as one of the world’s best young universities.
The Times Higher Education 150 Under 50 showcases the top universities from around the world under the age of 50. BU is placed between 101 and 150 in the rankings.
This follows BU’s inclusion earlier this year in the Times Higher Education list of the 200 most international universities in the world.
The list includes universities from 39 countries, including the United States, Australia, Europe and Asia. In total, 25 UK universities made the cut – more than any other nation.
Professor Tim McIntyre-Bhatty, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Bournemouth University, said, “This latest ranking underlines BU’s growing reputation. We are being recognised on the international stage for the quality of our teaching, research and global outlook, and this latest league table is further evidence that BU is amongst the best universities in the world.
“This is a fantastic achievement and testament to the journey that BU has been on as we look to achieve our vision of a fusion of excellent teaching, research and professional practice. It is a tribute to our staff, students and partners here in the UK and across the world who play a vital part in achieving our objectives.”
Phil Baty, Times Higher Education rankings editor, said, “The 150 Under 50 ranking is led by young, exciting and dynamic institutions – half of the universities in the top 10 are 30 years or under – from nations investing heavily in creating world-class institutions.”
This latest achievement builds on BU’s successes in 2015, when we entered the ranks of the top 500 universities in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. In addition, BU rose in all three major UK university league tables in 2015 - the Complete University Guide, the Guardian University Guide and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.
