QS Top 50 Under 50 2020 main image

Nanyang Technological University continues to be the top young university in the world according to the QS Top 50 Under 50, a table exclusively for the world's younger academic institutions.

First published in 2012, the QS Top 50 Under 50 ranks the best universities in the world which are under 50 years old, allowing some of the world’s top young universities to shine. Since 2015, it has tripled its range to include the Next 100 Under 50.

Unlike other university rankings, the Top 50 Under 50 and the Next 100 Under 50 see a vast amount of change each year, as universities drop out of the list after they pass the 50-year marker. So, if you can’t find an institution in this year’s list, it might be because it’s now older than 50 years.
