Sixteen Egyptian universities were placed on the 2023 Times Higher Education Young University Rankings list of the world’s best universities that are 50 years old or younger.

The 2023 ranking includes 605 universities, up from 539 in 2022. A further 358 institutions are listed with “reporter” status, meaning that they provided data but did not meet our eligibility criteria to receive a rank.

Aswan University came at the top of the Egyptian universities on the list, ranking number 101-150.

Damietta University came in the second position among Egyptian universities on the list, followed by Kafrelsheikh University, Benha University, Fayoum University, Beni-Suef University, Minia University, Suez Canal University, Zagazig University, and Zewail City of Science and Technology.

The list also included Menoufia University, Port Said University, South Valley University, The British University in Egypt, German University in Cairo, and Helwan University.

About the rankings methodology:

The Times Higher Education Young University Rankings apply the same methodology as the World University Rankings to assess research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. However, the weightings are recalibrated to reflect the profile of missions of young universities.

The rankings use 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments. The rankings include institutions that were founded between 1973 and the present.

The performance indicators are grouped into five areas; teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore tops the league table again after dropping to second place last year.

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology moves up to the second spot, while last year’s front-runner Paris Sciences et Lettres – PSL Research University Paris falls to third place.

Hong Kong has three institutions in the top 10, more than any other territory, while France is the most-represented country in the top 20, with five institutions in this group.

Italy’s Humanitas University is the highest new entry in the ranking, in 29th place.

The number of territories featured in the table rises to 78, from 74 last year. Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Namibia are among the countries that make their debuts.
