Ranking criteria

U-Ranking provides two types of classifications:

  1. U-Ranking, ranks the Spanish universities according to their performance - teaching, research, innovation and technological development - correcting the effects of the different size of the institutions to make them comparable with each other.
  2. U-Ranking degrees, gives the order of the degrees offered by the different universities, which allows, with a web tool that facilitates, that users express their preferences -what to study and where, according to what are the university activities- and build their own personal ranking. 
  3. U-Ranking Volume, which ranks universities according to their total volume of results (considering the combined effect of both variables, results and size).
  4. U-Ranking Dimensions, organizes the Spanish universities in three dimensions that make up the mission ( teaching, research and technological innovation and development).

Moreover, it examines the three dimensions, providing rankings for each area.

  • Teaching
  • Research
  • Innovation and Technological Development

And within each dimension the following four areas are evaluated:

  • Resources
  • Output
  • Quality
  • Internationalization

Finally, each area is analysed by the following indicators:

Dimension Area Indicator
Teaching Resources Faculty member with PhD per 100 students
Budget / Student
Faculty member with PhD / Faculty members
Output Success rate
Evaluation rate
Drop-out rate
Quality Index of attraction
Percentage of postgraduate students
Cut-off marks
Internationalization Percentage of foreign students
Percentage of students in exchange programs:
Percentage of students registered in programs imparted in non-official languages
Research Resources Competitive public resources per faculty member with PhD
Contracts with PhDs, research grants and technical support over total budget
Output Citable documents with ISI reference per faculty member with PhD
Total six-year terms over possible six-year terms
Doctoral theses read per 100 faculty members with PhD
Quality Mean impact factor

Innovation and Technological Development Resources Income from licenses per 100 faculty members with PhD
Income from consultancy contracts per 100 faculty members with PhD
Income from continuing professional development (CPD) courses per faculty member with PhD
Output Number of patents per 100 faculty members with PhD
CPD hours per faculty member with PhD
Number of contracts per faculty member with PhD

Finally, the general rankings provide the results categorized as follows:

  • Global
  • Teaching
  • Research
  • Innovation and Technological Development

Personalized rankings of degrees, through a web tool that allows the user to perform four steps:
