The University of Groningen is standing its ground amidst tough international competition from other research universities by maintaining its place in the top 100 of the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) rankings. In the list published today, the University of Groningen now occupies 98th place, 9 places below last year’s 89th position. ‘I’m pleased that we managed to stay in the top 100 of this important worldwide list’, says Sibrand Poppema, President of the Board of the University. ‘It consolidates our international top position, which is important in terms of attracting students and academics from abroad, and acquiring research funding.
This is why Poppema thinks that a good position in the rankings should never be underestimated. The University of Groningen has shot up the THE rankings since 2010, when it attained 170th place. In 2011, the University rose to the 134th position, and last year it made a huge leap to number 89.
