The Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2024 announces the lists of the world’s best universities that are 50 years old or younger. 

Although the weightings in the table have been modified to place less emphasis on reputation, they are still based on the same performance metrics as the flagship THE World University Rankings. The original approach has undergone considerable changes as of the 2024 rankings.

To provide the most thorough and fair comparisons possible, the universities are evaluated in relation to all of their primary goals, which include teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and an international perspective.

Universities are ranked among the 673 universities in the world in 2024, up from 605 in 2023. Check out the UK university rankings here:
