RUG remains in Times top 100. Just!

The University of Groningen is still in the top 100 of the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking list, but it has dropped nine places – from 89th to joint 98th.

Nevertheless, Sibrand Poppema, President of the Board of the University, is pleased. ‘It allows us to consolidate our reputation as a leading international university, which is important in terms of attracting students and academics from abroad, and acquiring research funding.’

The University of Groningen shares 98th position with Maastricht University. Maastricht made a huge jump (from 115th), Delft jumped 8 places (from 77th to 69th).

Three leading rankings

The other Dutch universities are ranked as follows: University of Amsterdam (83rd, remained stable), Rotterdam (down to 73rd from 72nd), Utrecht (down from 67th to 74th), Wageningen (down from 70th to 77th) and Leiden (down from 64th to 67th). Leiden is still the leading Dutch university.

The University of Groningen is in the top 100 of the world’s three leading university ranking lists, which places it in a group of 60 universities worldwide that can lay claim to the same achievement.
