University of Saint Joseph ranked 41st in the world for Quality Education in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021.



The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) has been ranked for the first time in the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings this year (2021). Now in its third edition, the THE Impact Rankings evaluates universities worldwide according to their social impact and sustainable development strategies, following the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Framework.

The results, released on 21st April, 2021, place USJ 41st globally for its impact in Quality Education and amongst the top 600 out of 1,115 universities from 94 countries and regions worldwide. Additionally, USJ was ranked 1st in Macao and at equal 4th position in Greater China alongside 4 universities from Mainland China and 1 from Hong Kong. USJ also earned a ranking in the top 200 for its work on marine sciences and environmental sustainability.

Commenting on the results, the Rector of USJ, the Rev’d Prof. Stephen Morgan said, “To find that in our first THE Impact Ranking, we are equal fourth in China, confirms that we are going in the right direction. Our Quality Education ranking, at 41st in the world, demonstrates that, despite our size, the education impact on offer at USJ is as good as it gets.”

Last month, USJ and the United Nations University Institute in Macau (UNUMACAU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on innovative research projects, capacity building initiatives, knowledge exchange engagements, internship programmes and other activities of mutual interest; hoping to accelerate the achievement of the UN SDGs by 2030.
