U-Multirank is a multidimensional global ranking list for universities. 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.

U-Multirank is multidimensional and contains several indicators regarding:
- Teaching and learning
- Knowledge transfer
- International orientation
- Regional engagement
Based on data from these indicators, users can generate ranking lists online based on indicators of their own choice. U-Multirank is based on the classification system U-Map, which uses 'activity profiles' to identify and determine the differences between educational institutions.
