“The IAU  welcomes U-Multirank as a new tool for comparing institutions of higher education, less biased by reputation and prestige and better adapted to the diversity in the sector.  Using a multiplicity of indicators it offers users the possibility to choose only those that are of importance to them when comparing institutions. With its promise to improve each year by adding information on new indicators it has real potential for drawing new comparisons among participating HEIs.”

“With a first-of-its-kind multi-dimensional approach to comparing institutional performance, U-Multirank is now putting students and the public into the driver’s seat of determining which universities are doing well on what and why. It has the potential to fundamentally transform our views on the quality of higher education and to create a genuinely level playing field for universities.”
