Oxford Brookes named as one of the best young universities in the world

Thursday, 07 April 2016


Oxford Brookes University has been named in the Times Higher Education’s 150 Under 50 Rankings for the first time.

The Rankings 2016 is a ranking of the top universities in the world which are under 50 years old. It celebrates those young universities that have made a great impact on the global stage in years rather than centuries and showcases the future rising university stars. 

Oxford Brookes is among 25 UK-based universities to be named in the rankings. 

Pro Vice-Chancellor Paul Inman said: “We are delighted to see Oxford Brookes recognised for the first time in THE’s 150 Under 50 Rankings. With our excellent reputation for teaching and support and internationally recognised research, this latest ranking is another indicator of our ability to compete with universities across the world. We are confident that we can increase Oxford Brookes’ global standing even further in the coming years.”

Last month, Oxford Brookes’ global reputation was recognised in the QS World Rankings by Subject where 12 subject areas were considered to be among the ‘world’s elite’.
