HHU improves its position in the World University Rankings slightly
HHU among the top 17 per cent worldwide in the “THE” ranking list

For the second time, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) has been placed in the top fifth of the best international universities. In the “Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2023” – for short: THE Rankings – HHU once again appears in the ranking group “251 – 300”. The university in Düsseldorf has maintained its position despite an 8% increase in the number of participating universities – from more than 100 countries – with a total of 1799 involved this year.

The THE Rankings take account of a balanced mix of indicators from the areas of research, teaching, academic publications and citations, industry income and international outlook, enabling the renowned, London-based Times Higher Education (THE) magazine to offer an international benchmark based on the best institutions in the world. Universities from 104 countries and regions took part in the current rankings for 2023. The ranking list is compiled exclusively on the basis of the active involvement of the universities themselves.

Professor Dr Stefan Marschall, Vice President for International Relations and Science Communication, is highly satisfied with this good international ranking: “Despite the increase in international competitors, HHU has maintained its very good position, indicating that Düsseldorf is competitive and has a strong profile beyond Germany’s borders. I am particularly delighted that we rank so highly in the “Citations” score.”

The “Citations” score – academic quotes and references to HHU – indicates how frequently the findings and ideas of a university have been cited in the past six years and thus how widely the university is known on the international stage. In this aspect, HHU has done better than two thirds of the 50 other German universities that participated in the THE rankings.
