Study Areas and Degree Levels


What is the difference between generalist and specialized universities?

Generalist universities offer a broad range of subjects and courses that allow students to explore different fields of study, or study areas, before choosing a major. They also provide students with a well-rounded education that can be applied to many different careers. On the other hand, specialized universities focus on a specific field of study and offer more in-depth courses and training in that field. This can be beneficial for students who know exactly what they want to do and want to gain specialized knowledge and skills in their chosen field.
Most higher education institutions offer a range of degree levels, from undergraduate to postgraduate degrees. However, some universities may offer more degree levels than others. In particular, larger-sized universities usually offer a wider selection of undergraduate and postgraduate degree types and levels.

    Size and Profile


    University size and profile can be important factors to consider when choosing a university or assessing its value. Here are some potential reasons why...

    • Resources: a larger university may have more resources available to its students, including research facilities, libraries, and extracurricular activities. However, a smaller university may offer a more personalized experience and smaller class sizes.
    • Diversity: the size and profile of a university can impact the diversity of its student body, faculty and curriculum. Larger universities may attract more international students and offer a wider range of academic programs, while smaller universities may have a more homogenous population.
    • Networking: a larger university may offer more opportunities for networking and building connections with other students and professionals in your field, but smaller universities may offer a tighter-knit community and more personalized networking opportunities.
    • Quality of Education: a university with a lower student-staff ratio typically means that students will receive more personalized attention from their instructors. This can lead to more individualized instruction, more opportunities for feedback and guidance and a better learning experience overall.
    • Location: campus setting can have an impact on students' access to resources, cost of living, transportation, social life and safety.
    • Religious affiliation: while it may not be the most important factor for everyone, understanding the religious affiliation of a university can help students determine if it aligns with their personal beliefs and provide a unique academic and spiritual experience.

    Overall, the importance of university size and profile can vary depending on the student's individual goals, beliefs and priorities. It is important to consider these factors along with other important criteria, such as academic programs, location, cost and university culture.

    Recognition and Accreditation


    There are different types of legal recognition and quality assessment of higher education institutions around the world, depending on the country and its legal and higher education system...

    • Institutional legal recognition: institutional legal recognition of a University refers to the formal recognition of the university's legal status by the government of a country. Legally recognized higher education institutions are chartered, registered and/or licensed by government bodies to be legal entities authorized to teach at the tertiary level.
    • Institutional accreditation: institutional accreditation is a type of additional quality assessment that evaluates the overall quality of an institution as a whole. Institutional accrediting bodies assess a University's overall mission, governance, leadership, faculty qualifications, student support services, financial stability and academic offering. Institutional accreditation is a concept that mainly exists in the US higher education system and a few other countries. So if you plan to study in the United States make sure that the University you choose is not only registered or licensed but officially accredited by a recognized accrediting body. In the US uniRank only includes accredited institutions.
    • Programmatic or specialized accreditation: programmatic or specialized accreditation, on the other hand, is a type of accreditation that evaluates and accredits specific academic programs within a University. Programmatic accreditation, granted by specialized national or international accrediting bodies, assesses the quality and rigor of a program's curriculum, faculty qualifications, student outcomes and resources and is focused on ensuring that a specific program or course meets industry standards and requirements.

    uniRank provides, for each University, the name of the organization that has officially granted institutional legal recognition or accreditation. For some Universities uniRank also provides a list of programmatic or specialized accreditations that, however, might be not complete or up-to-date.
