U-Multirank is a multidimensional, user-driven approach to the international ranking of higher education institutions. It compares the performance of higher education institutions across five dimensions of university activity: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation, and regional engagement.
The U-Multirank web tool enables comparisons at the university level as well as at the level of specific study programs. Based on empirical data, U-Multirank compares institutions with similar institutional profiles (“like-with-like”) and allows users to develop their own personalized rankings by selecting indicators in terms of their own preferences.
