Humanitas University is the highest new entry in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2023

Humanitas University has entered the Times Higher Education (THE) International Ranking for the first time, ranking among the top 250 universities in the world out of 1799 universities analysed, and placing itself as the best new entry.

Prof. Marco Montorsi, Rector of Humanitas University, stated: “We are very pleased with this result, which demonstrates that the Italian research and university system can take up the challenge of global and European competition, enhancing our skills and taking on a growing role in attracting talent. THE confirmed the impact of our scientific research, which got a score of 99.7 out of 100, in line with other international rankings.”

The THE ranking is based on 13 performance indicators, covering all areas of university activity: teaching, research, scientific impact, technology transfer and internationalisation.

This confirms Humanitas University’s results in international rankings, as already highlighted by the Leiden CWTS and U-Multirank for 2022: the University, in fact, was ranked first in the EU for the percentage of scientific publications in the top 10% worldwide by the Leiden CWTS Ranking and eighth in Europe for its degree course in Medicine by U-Multirank.

International rankings measuring the performance of academic institutions are an important reference for students all over the world, particularly when they are choosing a university and their future careers.

With 43% of foreign students attending the international course of Medicine and an increasing offer of courses abroad supported by travel grants, Humanitas University has always been characterized by a high degree of internationalisation since its establishment in 2014. In addition, it has constantly strived to improve the quality of teaching by devoting great attention to each individual student, and to innovate teaching methods by finding a valuable balance between theory and practice, which is fundamental for those working within life sciences.
