Set up in order to help students choose where to study, the U-Multirank tool compares over 1,700 universities and colleges from 92 countries across the world. Five dimensions are evaluated: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement. Each university is evaluated according to individual indicators in these categories and ranked between “very good” (A) to “weak” (E).
The University of Luxembourg was evaluated on 32 different indicators and received 16 A scores. It particularly stood out in the field of international orientation, where it received A marks for all 6 indicators for which it was graded.
