Logo U-Multirank Aalborg University rankingDuring 2013 and 2014, the European Commission will develop a multidimensional global ranking list for universities – U-Multirank. The project is carried out in collaboration with the German Centre for Higher Education (CHE) and the Dutch Centre for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS). The U-Multirank project has its outset in a pilot-project from 2009, in which Aalborg University took part.
The purpose of the project is to develop a ranking list that students, teachers, parents and others can consult in connection with decisions regarding choice of education and institution. Furthermore, the ranking list will serve as a tool for institutions of higher education in terms of improving position, quality and level of performance. U-Multirank is multidimensional and will contain a number of indicators regarding:

  • Teaching and learning
  • Research
  • Knowledge transfer
  • International orientation
  • Regional engagement

On the basis of data from these indicators, users will be able to generate ranking lists online based on indicators of their choice.

U-Multirank is based on the classification system U-Map, which uses 'activity profiles' to identify and determine the differences between educational institutions.

In 2012, Aalborg University took part in the Nordic U-Map project at the request of The Nordic Council of Ministers. The project included institutions of higher education from Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland and Denmark.
