Times Higher Education Rankings:

Netherlands: Wageningen University among the 50 best universities in the world

By securing 47th place on the renowned Times Higher Education World University Rankings, Wageningen University can now officially call itself one of the fifty best universities in the world. Excellent results in the area of research, teaching and citations compared with other universities were largely responsible for Wageningen’s high score. Furthermore, Wageningen finished way ahead of all other Dutch universities on this list.

The World University Rankings, compiled every year by the British Times Higher Education journal, compares more than 1,100 universities from around the world on the basis of their core activities: teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income (knowledge transfer to the business sector). 
Wageningen University finished among the top global universities in terms of research and industry income. The score for research, which accounts for 30 percent of the final score, is largely based on a university’s reputation among fellow institutions. The number of publications and level of research funding are also taken into account. The high valuation of Wageningen University is also due to the close collaboration with the Research section (DLO) of Wageningen UR.
