The URAP ranking system focuses on academic quality. The group gathered data about 3,000 higher education institutes (HEI), covering approximately 12% of all HEIs globally. From the 3,000-plus universities and learning institutions assessed, the ranking is derived based on multiple criteria focusing on academic performance.
The overall score of each HEI is based on its performance over several indicators, including current scientific productivity, research impact, research quality, and international acceptance.
This year, US Harvard University came first in the list, followed by Canada’s Toronto University, England’s University College London, and the US’s Stanford University.
