The University of Cyprus is the 30th best university in 2019 among countries with emerging economies, according to the Times Higher Education rankings.

The Cyprus University of Technology ranks 37th in the list.

The Times rank universities according to five areas: Teaching (the learning environment); Research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); International outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).

The rankings shine a spotlight on universities in 43 countries classed as emerging economies, including Cyprus, Brazil, India, Mexico, Taiwan, Turkey and the Czech Republic.
