Commission welcomes new international university ranking
The launch of a new global university ranking, set up with €2 million in EU funding was welcomed by the European Commission on Monday. U-multirank assesses the performance of more than 850 higher education institutions worldwide by producing multi-dimensional listings rating universities on a wider range of factors than existing international rankings.
European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth Androulla Vassiliou said: "I welcome the launch of this exciting new development in higher education. U-Multirank will enable students to make more informed decisions about where to study and give us a more accurate picture of how universities perform."
