Singapore – For the sixth year in a row, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) claimed the top place in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Top 50 Under 50 ranking.

The London education consultancy firm released the most recent rankings of the world’s youngest top performing educational institutions for 2020. The was first published in 2012. The list faces much change, since universities older than 50 years are dropped every year.

Similar to the QS World University ranking, the Top 50 list uses the same methodology to place academic institutions. The six indicators considered include academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations per faculty member, faculty/student ratio, proportion of international students, and proportion of international faculty members. Academic reputation is the most valued indicator for the QS .

Nanyang Technological University was founded in 1981 and initially called Nanyang Technological Institute. A spokesperson for the university described the current ranking as “a remarkable achievement for NTU and for Singapore.”
