University of Nicosia is among the top 40 Universities in the world for quality education, according to the 2022 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings.
The 2022 Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings once again have ranked the University of Nicosia (UNIC) in the Top 40 universities globally, placing it at number 36 in the world in Quality Education.
Furthermore, the results place UNIC in the #1 position in Cyprus and in the #2 position in Cyprus and Greece, and among the Top 15 universities in the European Union, in this core area.
The Impact Rankings is the only ranking to measure the progress of universities globally in terms of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), viewed as increasingly important given the critical action they stimulate in varied and essential areas for humanity and the planet, the university’s press release said.
In this respect, UNIC shares the top position in both Cyprus and Greece and ranks among the Top 75 in the EU and among the Top 301-400 universities in the world in terms of its overall social and economic impact – advancing its standing in this expanded fourth edition, which featured more than 1,400 universities from 106 countries and regions, including strong representation by the UK, the USA, Japan, and Australia.
“Universities have an essential role in contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through research and education”, said UNIC’s vice president for global partnerships and executive director of research and innovation professor Dimitris Drikakis.
“UNIC’s consistently excellent results in the Impact Rankings reflect our commitment to the SDGs and attest to our innovative strategies for sustainability on campus, as well as on a national and global scale, undertaken in collaboration with our expanding network of international academic and industrial partners”, he added.
UNIC’s status as an agent of positive change is reflected in its multifaceted university social responsibility (USR) campaigns and initiatives, the press release added.
These include scholarship programmes for refugees and immigrants in collaboration with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), an award-winning Youth Guidance Programme for children from underprivileged families, and enacting CSR Europe’s New Deal for sustainable growth and inclusive prosperity.
