Top 200 Universities in Europe

2024 European University Ranking


What are the most popular Universities in Europe? uniRank answers this question by publishing the 2024 European University Ranking of the top 200 recognized higher-education institutions in Europe meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate higher education-related organization in each country
  • offering at least three-year bachelor's degrees or postgraduate master's or doctoral degrees
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, non-distance education format

uniRank aims to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Universities in Europe based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
