Another great distinction for the University of Athens as it is ranked 9th in the world for its policy on “Gender Equality” and 27th in “Quality Education”, according to the Times Higher Education Impact Ranking.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Times Higher Education published the international university ranking “THE University Impact Rankings”, with NKUA achieving the highest performance and distinctions in its history.
The evaluation of universities is done in accordance with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
NKUA is ranked in the top 10 universities worldwide in Goal 5, which relates to HEIs’ policies and actions on gender equality, ranking 9th out of 1,081 universities, and is also ranked 27th in Goal 4: Quality Education and 69th in Goal 10: “Reduce inequalities”
The rise of the institution becomes even more significant when taking into account the fact that university participation has increased by 21% compared to last year (1700 this year from 1406 in 2022). The results of the ranking confirm the significant impact of the NUEB in improving social welfare, economic growth, addressing social inequalities, education and health.
The Rector of the University of Athens, Dr Thanos Dimopoulos, described this particular success as “special” and “of particular importance”. “On the one hand, because for the first time in its history, the University is among the 10 best universities worldwide in a ranking, and on the other hand, because the efforts of the University’s administration for a human-centered university that respects diversity, seeks equality, creates and innovates continuously and is an excellent working environment for its academic and administrative staff are highlighted in practice”, concluded.
