UM made headlines earlier this year when it took 193rd place in the 2024 university rankings published by Times Higher Education

In 2023, it had been placed within the Times 201 to 250 tier. MUST however slid down to the 251 to 300 cohort in 2024, falling from its 2023 ranking in the 201 to 250 grouping. 

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.
