DAAD, CHE and stern publish the English version of the
“University Ranking” on Germany universities
The university ranking produced by the CHE Center for Higher Education
Development and stern is making its first appearance on the Internet as
an English version – integrated into the web-based information services
offered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). International
students interested in studying in Germany will find the degree courses
and study programmes as well as the specific strengths and weaknesses of
242 German universities analysed in the 34 most popular subjects by
going to: www.university-ranking.de.
The number of inquiries received by telephone, e-mail or in person from
interested students all around the world over recent years has increased
proportionally to the extent that Germany’s Fachhochschule universities
of applied sciences and research universities have advertised themselves
and the study and research opportunities they offer on the
“International Education Market”: Examples of key questions are: Which
German universities offer the best study opportunities in my subject?
Where is the time to degree shortest? Which university offers
particularly good guidance, counselling and supervision services? In
short, the question asked at education fairs in English-speaking
countries is: Which German university is the best in my field of study?
As of immediately, the DAAD can offer interested foreign students
specific information on and answers to these questions. In cooperation
with the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE) and stern.de, the
DAAD has just launched the English version of the CHE and stern
university ranking on its website at: www.university-ranking.de.
The individual definition and weighting of numerous criteria enables
users to specifically find – in terms of their personal needs – the best
German university or universities. The ranking considers the strengths
and weaknesses of individual subjects and departments, as well as the
preferences of potential students. These include, for example, average
time to degree, the organisation of studies, availability of practical
training, courses and internships, the student:teacher ratio (guidance,
counselling, supervision), whether the university focuses on research or
applied studies, credit point systems, options for completing semesters
abroad, study sections instructed in foreign languages, etc.
DAAD Secretary General, Dr. Christian Bode, and the Head of the CHE,
Prof. Dr. Detlef Müller-Böling, jointly stated: “This ‘University
Ranking’ now makes Germany – in its capacity as a centre of academic
studies and research and with its wide range of programmes – even more
transparent for the international public and, therefore, more
interesting. The ranking developed by the CHE supports the efforts of
the DAAD to raise the appeal of Germany’s universities in the
international arena. The ranking helps users choose the right university
town in accordance with their personal goals and preferences. We now
look forward to making this methodologically matured instrument to an
international circle of interested persons and institutions all around
