Eight Greek universities among the world’s top universities according to QS rankings

Eight Greek universities, which were included in the overall global ranking of QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) for 2023 -2024, received high distinctions.

The first Greek university in the ranking is the National Technical University of Athens (347th position), followed by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (444th position), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (530th position), the University of Crete (534th position), the University of Patras (positions 791-800), the Athens University of Economics and Business (positions 901-950), the University of Ioannina (positions 1001-1200) and the Technical University of Crete (positions 1400+).

It is worth noting that last year six Greek HEIs were included in the corresponding ranking. In the top two positions of the ranking – and thus the two best universities in the world according to QS – are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the University of Cambridge. Oxford University moved up to third place, Harvard University moved up to fourth, while Stanford University dropped to fifth place compared to last year. It is worth mentioning that MIT is setting a significant record, being in 1st place in the ranking for the 11th consecutive year.

The top ten universities in the world are completed by Imperial College London (6th place), the University of Zurich (7th place), the National University of Singapore (8th place and for the first time in the top 10), UCL London (9th place) and UC Berkeley University of California (10th place).

It should be noted that this international ranking, published for the 20th consecutive year, is one of the most authoritative and important international rankings. It was based on over 141.6 million citations identified in more than 17.5 million publications, as well as 240,000 responses to questionnaires and interviews with academics and employers. More than 6,000 universities were evaluated, from which the best 1,497 were ultimately selected. QS for the 2023-24 academic year included universities from 104 countries in its overall ranking, with 85 new entries.

Among the criteria on which the ranking is based are academic reputation (through a questionnaire survey, the employer survey of university alumni, the number of hetero-references per professor, the student-to-member ratio, international research networking and employment-related outcomes.
