The Univer­sity of Cyprus has been in­cluded among the lead­ing higher education in­sti­tu­tions in the world hav­ing en­tered the top-200 list in this year’s rank­ings by sub­ject of stud­ies com­piled by QS.

UCy ranks in the 151-200 cat­e­gory for ‘education’, one of the 42 dis­ci­plines ex­am­ined by the lead­ing global provider of higher education in­for­ma­tion and re­search.

In reach­ing the world’s top 200, the Univer­sity of Cyprus ranks along­side China’s Ts­inghua Univer­sity (25th in the over­all QS World Univer­sity rank­ings), the UK’s Univer­sity of Le­ices­ter, and Aus­tralia’s Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy Syd­ney as one of the world’s top 200 places to study education. At the front end of the ta­ble, Univer­sity Col­lege Lon­don’s In­sti­tute of Education beat Har­vard Univer­sity to the world num­ber 1 spot.

The Univer­sity of Cyprus in­clu­sion in the list means that Cyprus is one of 60 coun­tries world­wide that con­tain univer­si­ties recog­nised by QS as pro­vid­ing a world-class education in one or more sub­jects.

The opin­ion of 76,798 academics and 44,426 em­ploy­ers helped com­pile the re­sults, along­side the anal­y­sis of 28.5 mln re­search pa­pers and over 113 mln ci­ta­tions sourced from the Sco­pus/El­se­vier bib­lio­met­ric data­base.

Har­vard and the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (MIT) con­tinue to dom­i­nate, lead­ing in 24 sub­jects be­tween them. Each takes twelve lead­ing po­si­tions.
