France has consolidated its position as the leading nation for the world’s youngest universities, according to the latest Times Higher Education data.

The country takes the top three spots in the THE list of the best “millennial” universities – institutions founded since the year 2000. Paris Sciences et Lettres – PSL Research University Paris and Sorbonne University are once again ranked first and second, while the University of Paris joins in third following a merger last year.

Overall, 15 French universities feature in the list, reflecting the recent restructuring of the country’s higher education system.

The rest of the top 10 is dominated by universities elsewhere in Europe: the University of Luxembourg (fourth), Belgium’s University of Antwerp (fifth), Germany’s University of Duisburg-Essen (sixth), Finland’s Aalto University (eighth), Austria’s Medical University of Graz (ninth) and Medical University of Vienna (10th). The only non-European country in this group is South Korea’s Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) at seventh place.

The table, which was compiled for the fourth time this year, is a subset of the?THE?Young University Rankings, which lists the best universities that are 50 years old or younger. Overall, 88 universities feature in the list.

The Young University Rankings are based on the same metrics as the?THE?World University Rankings. But the weightings are?recalibrated?to reflect young universities’ missions, with less emphasis on reputational surveys and more on factors such as research productivity, staff-student ratios, institutional income and doctoral education.
