The "Under 50" ranks universities founded in 1969 or after by research impact. We do not include merged or split universities. In such cases, we consider the foundation year of the oldest mother institution. If a university is born from a satellite campus of an older university, we take the year of foundation of this satellite campus as the "date of birth". If the status changed from a college to a university, the foundation date of the college is considered.

We display and rank here all universities below 50 years old ranked in the Top 500 ranking, using the same ranking criteria.
