Semmelweis University has been ranked in the top 250 in the Times Higher Education (THE) world ranking. The institution announced on its website that this is the first time that a Hungarian institution has been included in THE’s top 250.
Semmelweis was already there two years ago: however, not in the world ranking, but in the list of specialised universities. Last year, they were ranked in the 250-300th place in the overall university ranking, Telex reports.
According to a statement on the university’s website, the institution “was ranked 491st in 2019, then moved up to 457th in 2020 and 426th in 2021, and 277th in 2022, from where it has now moved up to 236th”. Two years ago, in the world ranking of universities of applied sciences, “the institution moved up two whole categories in the Clinical and Health Sciences, from 301-400 to 201-250”.
The World Ranking has traditionally measured institutions on the basis of indicators in five areas: educational environment, research, citations, industry revenue and international orientation. Semmelweis has improved in most indicators, most significantly in citations and research.
A total of 11 Hungarian universities were included in THE’s list this year. Of the universities in the top 1,000, Eötvös Loránd University is ranked 601-800, the University of Pécs, the University of Szeged, the University of Debrecen and the University of Óbuda are ranked 1001-1200.
Oxford and Harvard top the overall rankings, with Stanford and Cambridge tied for third place. Semmelweis is ranked 64th in the ranking of universities in the European Union, typically ahead of German, French and Belgian universities.
