OMU Placed in 1001+

British ranking institution Times Higher Education’s (THE) 2019 World University Rankings have been announced at the World Academic Summit organized in Singapore in 25-26 September 2018. Ondokuz Mayıs University (OMU) placed in the 1001+ group, as in the previous year.

World University Rankings is the only global university performance table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators are used to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

This year’s list of the best universities in the world is led by the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge for the second year in a row. Yale University is the only newcomer to the top 10, joining at eighth place, up from 12th. Meanwhile, Switzerland’s ETH Zurich has fallen out of this elite group, dropping from joint 10th to 11th place. Tsinghua University is now the top university in Asia, after rising eight places to 22nd, becoming the first Chinese institution to lead the continent under the current methodology (since 2011). China as a whole has increased its standing, driven by improvements in citation impact. Elsewhere in Asia, Japan has overtaken the UK as the second most-represented nation in the world, with 103 institutions (the UK has 98). Overall, 86 countries are represented, including Iraq, Jamaica, Nepal, Tanzania and Kazakhstan for the first time. 

3 Turkish universities are placed among the top 500 of the World University Rankings 2019. There are 23 Turkish universities among the 1001+ announced universities. Previous year OMU was placed in this for the first time at the 1001+ range. Ranking among the top 5% universities in the world where there are approximately 20 thousand is regarded as a significant accomplishment.

OMU climbs up the ranks

OMU was also placed in the 351+ group in the THE Emerging Economies University Rankings 2018.
