Altogether three universities from Slovakia made it onto the list of the best schools in the world.
The Comenius University in Bratislava placed between 601st-800th position in the recent Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THE WUR) 2018, while the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava and the Technical University in Košice placed between 801st and 1,000th position.
“We are glad that the Comenius University kept a stable placement among the best universities in the world, despite the amount we get as a state subsidy and from the budget, which is in fact incomparable with the opportunities of the schools that we are compared with,” said Comenius University’s Rector Karol Mičieta, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
The first position in the ranking is occupied by the University of Oxford, which is followed by the University of Cambridge and the California Institute of Technology.
THE WUR ranking system compares the universities based on quality and quantity indicators. The current list contains the rankings of the 1,102 best schools. It judges indicators such as teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
