Maastricht University rises to top 10 ranking among young universities

Maastricht University has made it into the top 10 of the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 Ranking. In the 2nd edition of this special ranking for young universities UM rose from 19th to 6th place. This reflects UM’s dramatic rise in the THE World University Rankings 2012-2013, where UM rose an impressive 82 places to the 115th position.

The rise in both rankings was due largely to a better reputation score, to good scores in the percentage of international staff and students, and to research quality, including number of scientific citations.
