Phil Batty, Global Relations Officer at Times Higher Education Rankings, praised this achievement, appreciating the contribution of Turkish universities to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, especially in the areas of education, poverty eradication and combating climate change.

This success is attributed to the continuous efforts made by the Turkish government to support higher education and enhance the role of universities in scientific research and community service.
