Groningen quick climber in QS ranking

16 September 2010

The University of Groningen has climbed 18 places in the annual QS World University Ranking and is now at 120. This makes Groningen nearly the best climber in the Netherlands, coming in just behind Radboud University Nijmegen which jumped amazingly from 220 to 149.

A number of other universities, including Amsterdam, Leiden and Utrecht, dropped in the ranking, although they are still in the Top 100.

Cambridge is now at the top of the international ranking, having taken over first place from Harvard. The first 17 places in the ranking went to 13 American and 4 British universities.

The QS ranking was previously known as the Times Higher Education ranking (THE-QS). Times Higher Education has introduced a new methodology this year and will present their own ranking list on 16 September.
