Ruperto Carola is one of the top three universities in Germany once again: the 2022/2023 Times Higher Education World University Rankings place Heidelberg University third after the two universities in Munich. Ranking 43rd internationally, it is yet again among the world’s “Top 50” – as in the previous years it is one of only three German universities to earn that distinction, along with the Technical University of Munich (30th) and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (33rd). In the Europe-wide comparison, Heidelberg has moved up one place in the THE Rankings, now placing 13th.
The Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, published on 12 October 2022, are based on various indicators in five areas of performance, with teaching, research and citations assigned a 30 per cent weighting each. Other areas analysed include aspects of internationalisation (worth 7.5 per cent) and industry income (worth 2.5 per cent).
