University of Crete gets global ranking

University of Crete ranks 48th in list of top universities founded after 1964, according to the The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-2014.

University of Crete ranks 48th in the Times Higher Education ranking of the top 100 universities in the world founded after 1964.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-2014 are the only global university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

The top universities rankings employ 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

The five headline categories are:

Research: volume, income and reputation (30 per cent)

Citations: research influence (30 per cent)

Teaching: the learning environment (30 per cent)

International outlook: people and research (7.5 per cent)

Industry income: innovation (2.5 per cent).

However, in the list of the top 400 universities, regardless of the year of their foundation, the Cretan University ranks in the 50 places-category between 301-350, which is quite low, while no other Greek university appears on this list.
