“U-Multirank will enable students to make more informed decisions about where to study and give us a more accurate picture of how universities perform.”

“U-Multirank provides an elegant solution to a problem which undermines conventional rankings. It does not seek to weight different activities of a university but allows users to devise their own ranking according to what they believe is important. Therefore it democratises university rankings and will be an essential tool for all those who are stakeholders in modern universities.”

“Through U-Multirank it is possible for the first time to truly compare higher education institutions with each other according to different aspects. For the Erasmus Student Network it is very important to compare not only research outcomes but also to have a look at the international perspective of institutions. We fully support the U-Multirank project and believe it will benefit students greatly in choosing institutions for their studies.”

“With a first-of-its-kind multi-dimensional approach to comparing institutional performance, U-Multirank is now putting students and the public into the driver’s seat of determining which universities are doing well on what and why. It has the potential to fundamentally transform our views on the quality of higher education and to create a genuinely level playing field for universities.”
