Irish Universities Get Top Ranks
By Irish America Staff
April / May 2015
Several Irish universities are ranked in the highest echelons of a new international ranking system. A recent report from U-Multirank gave Dublin City University and the National University of Ireland Galway perfect scores in the “international orientation” category. Only 27 institutions from the worldwide study received perfect grades, and Ireland tied Switzerland and Sweden for fifth place by having two institutions in the top-tier.
The new U-Multirank system is a welcome change from the norm. Users are able to compare similar institutions in a variety of ways so that they might glean a better understanding of how an institution performs in the realm that suits their specific needs.
The Irish universities in U-Multitrank’s top 27 internationally oriented schools lagged behind others when it came to research and publication. However, Irish universities all scored top marks in B.A. and M.A. graduates working in the region. ♦
