Not bad, for a young…university.

DUBLIN CITY UNIVERSITY has been named in a top 50 under 50 poll.

The Glasnevin university is the only Irish institution on the QS Top 50 Under 50, which was created to highlight the achievements of younger institutions which may be placed at a disadvantage when competing with longer-established universities in the normal rankings.

Professor Brian MacCraith, President of DCU, said that the inclusion of the university at number 44 was recognition of the work at the college.

“DCU’s inclusion, for the third year running, in the QS Top 50 Under 50, is a welcome recognition globally of DCU as a young, innovative university leading the way in delivering a first-class education for its students and spearheading research with real societal impact.

“Despite difficult funding circumstances, DCU continues to hold its own on the international stage, thanks to the commitment and quality of its academic and research staff.”

The list was topped by The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
