All 13 Dutch research-led universities are included in the Times Higher Education ranking of the top 200 universities in the world for the first time. Like last year, eight Dutch institutions make the top 100.
Delft University of Technology is highest ranked, in 59th place. Amsterdam is second in 63rd place and Wageningen third in 65th. Tilburg University, the only one missing in last year’s list, debuts at 198.
The list is compiled on the basis of teaching, research, international outlook and reputation. Oxford University is this year’s ranking leader.
‘This is a great performance and one we are very proud of,’ Karl Dittrich, chairman of the university umbrella group VSNU said in a statement.
The Netherlands is also once again the fourth most-represented country in the top 200 of the rankings.
