Those institutions listed in the THE 100 Under 50 2012 must have a foundation date no earlier than 1962 (see methodology). Some human judgment is required in order to determine a foundation date in cases, for example, where universities have been developed from older institutions. Although it has origins in a 1903 institution, the University of Victoria, Canada, has pointed out to us that it was granted independent university status in 1963, and should have qualified for inclusion in the table. Times Higher Education and Thomson Reuters accept this. Had Victoria been included, we can confirm it would have been ranked in 11th place. We apologise for the omission.
