For prospective students and potential employers in the German-speaking world the CHE ranking is one of the most influential for the German higher education landscape. Our University's departments and degree programmes regularly achieve leading scores in the different categories under evaluation. The ranking is conducted annually by Centrum for Higher Education Development and published by German newspaper 'Die ZEIT' both online and in its Studienführer, a special publication for readers looking for a degree programme. The digital version makes it possible to compare subjects and institutions according to a set of individual parameters.
The survey results are currently being compiled and will be published on this page soon.
