University of Nicosia advances to top 501-600 universities in the world

University of Nicosia has advanced to the top 501-600 universities in the world, according to a press release issued by the University.

The latest edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, released on 12 October 2022, reaffirms the University of Nicosia’s (UNIC) global standing, ranking it among the Top 501-600 universities in the world. Correspondingly, UNIC ranks 157th in the European Union, 2nd in Cyprus and 4th among the Cypriot and Greek Universities.

“This latest distinction expands upon UNIC’s ranking achievements as a leading global university, essentially now among the top 2% of universities in the world”, noted Professor Philippos Pouyioutas, Rector of the University. The Rector underscored the University’s upward trajectory in the World University Rankings, with UNIC markedly advancing its standing (from the Top 601-800 band last year).

“More broadly, such ranking achievements are indicative of the tremendous development of the university field in Cyprus, which boasts three of the Top universities in the world according to Times Higher Education: University of Cyprus, University of Nicosia and the Cyprus University of Technology. This is particularly impressive when considering the island’s relatively short 30+-year history in university education”, noted Rector Pouyioutas.

One of the core areas in which the University demonstrably continues to excel in the THE WUR is International Outlook, where UNIC ranked 47th globally. “Maintaining our last year’s position in this core area attests to our innovative internationalisation strategy and especially to our notable success in offering cross-border education”, remarked Rector Pouyioutas.

According to the press release, the results of this year’s World University Rankings are the latest in a succession of distinctions bestowed on UNIC by Times Higher Education. Along with its inclusion in the Top 501-600 universities in the world (THE WUR table), UNIC was ranked 179th among the universities in the world that are 50 years old or younger by the 2022 THE Young University Rankings.

The University was also ranked 122nd among the universities of countries or regions classified by the London Stock Exchange’s FTSE Group as “Emerging” by the 2022 THE Emerging Economies Rankings. In addition, it is placed among the Top 201-250 universities in the world in Business and Economics and Education, by the 2022 THE World University Rankings by subject, which correspondingly places UNIC as the 1st and 2nd correspondingly, ranked university in Cyprus and Greece, and among the Top 50 universities in the European Union, in these subject areas.

It is noted that the University of Nicosia ranked 36th in the core area of Quality Education by the 2022 THE Impact Rankings.
