Universität Heidelberg third in Germany – four German universities among the world's “Top 100”
Ruperto Carola again takes its place among the best three universities in Germany: In the recently published Academic Ranking of World Universities 2022, known as the Shanghai Ranking, Heidelberg places third after the Technical University of Munich (56th) and Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (57st). Ruperto Carola places 70th internationally and 22th among universities in Europe. At 76th, the University of Bonn is the fourth German university in the Shanghai Ranking's “Top 100”.
The Shanghai Ranking especially measures an institution’s scientific influence, making research a key factor in the evaluation. Publications and citations in international scientific journals, most frequently cited researchers, and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals each make up 20% of the final score. The remaining indicators include, amongst others, the alumni recipients of one of these two outstanding awards.
