International rankings

Rankings assign global positions to universities so that students, researchers and other users can compare them easily.

Each ranking uses its own method, but the total score is always calculated on the basis of a set of indicators. This means that the indicators chosen and the weight they are given in the calculation have an important impact on a university’s position in the ranking.
