The University of Macau (UM) and Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST) have risen to 254th place and 505th place respectively in the 2024 QS World University Rankings.
In recent years, UM and MUST have been steadily climbing the annually published list. UM was originally placed between 651 and 700 in 2016, but was ranked at 322 in 2022, and at 304 in 2023.
MUST has also seen an upward trend, with a ranking in the 651 to 700 band in 2022, before jumping to the 581 to 590 grouping in 2023.
UM made headlines earlier this year when it took 193rd place in the 2024 university rankings published by Times Higher Education.
Together with the Times Higher Education rankings and the Academic Ranking of World Universities, the QS World University Rankings is considered to be one of the premier lists for ranking tertiary education institutions worldwide.
