The entry requirements for the global ranking are: teaching activity at multiple levels of education, diversity of disciplines, internationally visible publication activity. Of all the institutions that meet these requirements, 1300 – nearly 300 more than last year – were ranked in the world ranking, which is based on six criteria. The major one is the academic reputation of the institution, with a weighting of 40%, followed by the employer reputation, with a weighting of 10%. The faculty / student ratio, and the number of citations per faculty were also assessed, with a weighting of 20% each. The last two criteria are the International faculty ratio and the International student ratio (5% each). The excellent teaching and research activities of the University of Szeged are demonstrated by the fact that almost all ranking criteria received a higher score than last year. The institution’s employer recognition has increased significantly, while the strongest indicator is the proportion of international students.

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
