VU was the first and the only Lithuanian university so far to be included into the ranking.

Universities from 48 countries have been assessed, whereas only 200 were selected for the rating. “We rated the best competitive universities from the region only, therefore the very fact of VU inclusion into the list of 200 rated universities is a huge achievement and recognition for VU,” Phil Baty, editor of THE Rankings, said in his letter to VU.

VU Rector Prof Artūras Žukauskas says that “this achievement is a good start for our future vision to join the team of the best European and global universities. The result of the present ranking demonstrates that we are on the right track.”

China has reinforced its dominance in the Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings 2016, claiming half of the top 10 places.

Beijing-based Peking and Tsinghua universities have taken the top two spots for the third year in a row, while the Lomonosov Moscow State University from Russia ranked the third. Latvian universities were left beyond ranking, while five universities from Poland and two universities from Estonia were included into the list of 200 ranked universities as well, VU said.
