What is U-Multirank?

U-Multirank is a university ranking system which enables you to compare universities and specific study programmes based on their performance.

It provides recommendations for universities sorted by your preferences, including location, programme of study, strength in research, international focus and student satisfaction, so that you can make an informed decision about the institution of your choice.

U-Multirank does this by combining both institutional rankings and field-based rankings based on specific disciplines.
