U-Multirank: Compare Universities based on Ranking Criteria

logo_startseiteThe EU-funded project U-Multirank has published its third and largest global ranking, helping students, teachers and employers to make the right choice about universities from more than 90 countries. U-Multirank is the first global ranking that allows people to compare universities according to a broad mix of criteria: research performance, teaching and learning, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement. This year’s ranking shows that European universities lead the world in regional engagement but can still do more. This was a central issue in the European Commission’s recent consultation on the modernisation of higher education: only one fifth of the more than 1,400 respondents considered that universities play a strong role in national or regional innovation, while three-quarters strongly supported more EU level cooperation in this field. The project is funded by the EU’s Erasmus+ programme, which will allow more than four million young Europeans to study, work, train and volunteer in another country between 2014 and 2020.
