COMENIUS University (UK) in Bratislava placed 459th in the 2013 University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP), improving its position from 2012 when it placed 527th. It was the only Slovak school to make it into the top 500 universities list.

“The top 500 ranking in 2013 is evidence of the significant research potential of our university,” said UK Rector Karol Mičieta, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “Our academic activity is comparable to the world leaders.”

The URAP ranking system ranks the 2,000 best universities around the world every year. It was first created in 2009 at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara. The URAP criteria are based on objective and measurable parameters, such as the number of articles published combined with the number of citations of this work, academic productivity and the degree of international cooperation in which the university is involved, TASR wrote.
