International Profile

International rankings

There are a number of different lists - or rankings - of 'best universities'. These rankings classify universities according to particular quality criteria. The rankings use different indicators, both for research and teaching, which means it is possible for a particular university to be higher in one ranking than in another, depending on the indicators used.
