One of the most prestigious higher education institutions in Hungary, Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), is in the global spotlight once again, and for good reason. Based on the latest CWUR statistics, ELTE climbed over seventy positions on the list of the best higher education institutions around the world.
Index reported that Eötvös Loránd University has greatly improved its ranking, rising seventy-four positions higher, landing in 517th position. The statistics were gathered by CWUR (Central for World University Rankings), based on their 2022-2023 evaluation. In the top three positions are Harvard, the University of Massachusetts, and Stanford respectively.
This means that the prestigious Hungarian university is in the upper 2.7 percentage of higher education institutions worldwide.
This is nothing to scoff at, seeing that ELTE is in the same category as the University of Verona, the University of Zagreb, Saint Petersburg State University, École normale supérieure de Lyon, Jiangsu University of China, and even Boston College in the US, says Eduline.
On the European Rankings, ELTE ranked 213th.
Notably, however, many other esteemed universities are on the CWUR leaderboards: the Central European University ranked 1,745th, the University of Pécs, the University of Debrecen, and the University of Szeged ranked 1,135th, 717th, and 679th respectively. Semmelweis University came close to ELTE, managing to take the 673rd position.
