The Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 is a ranking of the top 100 universities under 50 years old. It provides a glimpse into the future, showcasing not those institutions with centuries of history, but the rising stars which show great potential. The table employs the same 13 separate indicators as the World University Rankings, but the methodology has been carefully re-calibrated to reflect the special characteristics of younger universities, giving less weight to subjective indicators of academic reputation.

The University of Victoria
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.
