Ljubljana, May 28, 2018 - The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR), which represents the largest global university scale, published this year's list of the best universities in the world. The University of Ljubljana ranks as 370th among more than 18,000 universities. Last year it was in the 467th place.

The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) is a leading consulting organization providing policy advice, strategic insights, and consulting services to governments and universities to improve educational and research outcomes. CWUR publishes authoritative global university rankings, known for objectivity, transparency, and consistency, which are trusted by students, academics, university administrators, and government officials from around the world.

CWUR uses seven objective and robust indicators to rank the world’s universities without relying on surveys and university data submissions:

  1. Quality of Education, measured by the number of a university's alumni who have won major international awards, prizes, and medals relative to the university's size (15%)
  2. Alumni Employment, measured by the number of a university's alumni who have held CEO positions at the world's top companies relative to the university's size (15%)
  3. Quality of Faculty, measured by the number of academics who have won major international awards, prizes, and medals (15%)
  4. Research Output, measured by the total number of research papers (15%)
  5. Quality Publications, measured by the number of research papers appearing in top-tier journals (15%)
  6. Influence, measured by the number of research papers appearing in highly-influential journals (15%)
  7. Citations, measured by the number of highly-cited research papers (10%)

In addition to rankings on the CWUR scale, the University of Ljubljana is also ranked on the remaining three most influential global scales. On the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), it ranks from 401 to 500th place, on The Times Higher Education Ranking (THE), ranks from 601 to 800th place, and on the QS World University Rankings ranks between 651 and 700th place.
