The Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan (AWKUM) has been ranked the first in Pakistan and the 157th in the world in the recently released Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings-2021.
The list includes the world’s best universities that are not more than 50 years old. The table uses the same performance indicators as THE’s World University Rankings, with less weightage given to reputation.
The universities are judged based on their core missions, including teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. This provides the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available.
The 2021 ranking includes 475 universities, up from 414 in 2020.
Discussing the development, the Vice-Chancellor of the AWKUM, Professor, Dr. Zahoorul Haq, said that the university’s core focus is on research culture and improving teaching quality.
“This achievement indicates that our faculty is talented, dedicated, and productive as teachers and researchers,” he said.
