AU in the world rankings

A number of rankings evaluate universities. The rankings consider combinations of measures of research productivity and impact, quality of degree programmes, internationalization, and reputation. The indicators and methods used by the rankings vary.    


Aarhus University is particularly focused on six of the leading world rankings.

Aarhus University ranks among top 100 universities in the world on several rankings – out of over 17,000 universities worldwide. 

The world rankings have become very influential. A high ranking is thus an important factor in the competition to attract and retain the best students, researchers and partners from all over the world.
