U-Multirank is a new online tool for students, researchers and policy makers to help them compare higher education institutions worldwide. On http://www.u-multirank.eu/ you can select indicators, based on your own interests and needs, to compare institutions. The online tool is designed with seed funding from the European Commission and has been active since 2014.
Data for U-Multirank is provided by the universities themselves and their students. Data about both research and education, as well as institutions' international orientation and regional involvement, are also taken into account.
