“U-Multirank provides students with the data they need to make an informed choice on where to study, based on the orientation they want to give to their career. It recognizes the diversity of profiles of students, and helps to connect the needs of the students and the different educational options that the universities offer. This tool has the potential to improve mobility by helping students to find the best match for their profile and the career they want to pursue.”

“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.”

U-Multirank is a most welcome development in the promotion of higher education and research.  It will contribute to greater understanding of the role and  performance of higher education institutions throughout the EU. This tool has the capacity to reflect the breadth of the higher education mission. It will foster mission differentiation in ways that will be beneficial to students, to institutions and to policy makers seeking to support diversity of high quality provision within coherent systems of higher education.
