Spectacular rise in Times Higher Education rankings

Spectacular rise in Times Higher Education rankings

Maastricht University has climbed 82 places - from 197 in 2011 to 115 this year - in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, which were published today. This is the highest rise in the university’s history. So how did this come about? For one thing, the citation scores have increased “significantly”, says a THE editor, and UM’s general reputation has improved in both education and research.

Other things have helped as well. For instance, the university reported a lower number of employees than last year, which means an automatic increase in the funding allocated per staff member. And while the staff–student ratio is again slightly less than favourable, the balance for UM is ultimately positive.

The Netherlands is doing exceptionally well in this year’s rankings. With 12 universities, it is the third best represented country in the international top 200 after the US and the UK.
