Top 200 Universities in the World

2023 uniRank World University Ranking New


What are the most popular Universities in the world? uniRank answers this question by publishing the 2023 uniRank World University Ranking of the top 200 higher-education institutions in the world meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country
  • offering at least three-year bachelor's degrees or postgraduate master's or doctoral degrees
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, non-distance education format

uniRank aims to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Universities in the world based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
