The CHE university ranking is the most comprehensive and most detailed ranking of German higher education institutions.
University rankings are drawn upon to assess the quality of research and teaching at universities using a variety of criteria. Apart from facts about study programmes, teaching, equipment and research, the ranking includes students’ opinions about the study conditions at their university and, for some subjects, the reputation of the faculties among the professors.
Since it was first launched, its target group of incoming students, those already studying and the universities, too, have found the ranking to be fair, informative and informed.
The current CHE Ranking can be found at Zeit Online.
