A multidimensional, user-driven approach to international ranking of higher education institutions based on empirical data.
In contrast to most well known rankings, U-Multirank not only focuses on research. It also takes into account other aspects like teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement. Furthermore no composite overall indicators are being calculated since those are seen as not very robust. Finally the methodology combines institutional ranking (of whole institutions) with field-based rankings that focus on particular academic disciplines or groups of programmes.
