U-Ranking: The U-Ranking of Spanish Universities is a joint initiative of the BBVA Foundation and the Valencian Institute of Economic Research (IVIE). The results are presented in two different formats:
U-Ranking Volume, which classifies the universities based on the total volume of the results.
U-Ranking, which classifies the universities based on productivity, offsetting any impact their size may have.
The indicators include: teaching, research and innovation and technological development.
U-Multirank: is a multidimensional international ranking that takes a new, multidimensional approach to create an international ranking of higher education institutions.
U-Multirank’s indicators cover 5 aspects: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement. Based on these indicators, U-Multirank compares institutions with similar profiles and allows users to develop personalised rankings by selecting indicators according to their interests and priorities. Not only does its methodology highlight the diversity of the higher education institutions, it also includes a variety of aspects to measure university excellence in an international context.
UniRank is an international higher education directory. It offers reviews and rankings of over 13,000 officially recognised universities in 200 countries.
UniRank, in its 2018 edition, published a world ranking based on valid and unbiased web metrics, which ranks the top 200 officially-recognised higher education institutions, which must meet the following selection criteria:
Be accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organisation in the home country.
Be authorised to grant at least four-year undergraduate degrees and/or postgraduate degrees.
Teach programmes in a traditional face-to-face learning format, not online.
UniRank, which also ranks universities by country, includes 75 Spanish universities
The Ranking Web of Universities is a university ranking system whose main objective is to give institutions a ranking that provides an overview of the state of this kind of website. It also seeks to stand as a useful tool for assessing research and communication in academia.
The El Mundo Ranking classifies Spanish institutions, as well as bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees. It includes the 50 most popular bachelor’s degrees among students and the top five universities for each option. The ranking is the result of a detailed analysis based on 25 criteria, the opinion of 2,000 lecturers and external studies (international rankings, ANECA reports, etc.).).
This list is compiled by a group of experts at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China, and assesses the quality of the world’s top 500 universities. This list includes the world’s biggest higher education institutions. The universities are ordered in accordance with a formula that takes the following factors into account:
Number of university alumni (weight: 10%) and staff (weight: 20%) winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals.
Number of highly cited researchers in 21 broad category subjects (20%).
Number of papers published in Nature and Science (20%).
Number of papers indexed in Science Citation Index-expanded and Social Science Citation Index (20%).
"Per capita performance", i.e. the scores of the above indicators divided by the number of full-time academic staff (10%).
