Aston ranked in ‘world’s top 50’
14.06.2012, Aston Business School
1 June 2012

Aston University has been ranked 47th in a new index of the world’s leading universities under the age of 50.

The 2012 league table, compiled in partnership with the Guardian and international rankings agency QS, is designed to identify who might become ‘the next Harvard’ and provide the ‘next generation of global thought leadership’.

Aston is also placed 3rd for ‘employer reputation’ in the ‘QS top 50 universities under 50’ table. It is a further success for the University, with graduate employers ranking Aston at 51st in the world overall in the full QS Guide, which lists the world’s top 500 universities.

Nine UK institutions are ranked in the Guardian QS’s ‘top 50 under 50’ including Warwick, York and Bath. In the UK alone, there are 98 post-1961 universities.

The table is topped by Aston University’s international partner the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The table is based on five main criteria – academic reputation, employer reputation, citation by faculty, ratio of International students and ratio of International faculty.

Aston University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Julia King, said, “This new global index rating is a great endorsement for Aston University. It emphasises our outstanding business links, innovative research and strong international reputation as well as the positive career prospects that students can expect from Aston.”

Aston began as the Birmingham Municipal Technical School in 1895, evolving into the UK’s first elite College of Advanced Technology in 1956. Aston University’s Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth II was formally sealed in April 1966.
