Universities are an American phenomenon. There the rank lists have a long tradition. In the 90 years the ranking wave then spilled over the large pond to Germany.

Each publisher has its own ranking

Overview

To date, many publishers have published their own university publications, including Der Spiegel, the Focus and Handelsblatt. In the meantime, a ranking has clearly emerged:

The CHE ranking, which is being developed in collaboration with the Zeitverlag publishing house with the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE), has a head in terms of popularity and reputation. But the methods of the CHE rankings and their American role models are not uncontroversial.

This funding program distinguishes 11 universities as so-called elite universities, including, for example, the universities of Bremen, Cologne, Tübingen and Heidelberg.

Elite university no decision criterion

Overview

Above all, however, the German Excellence Initiative rates the research of the universities with its funding program. The title "Elite-Uni" is therefore hardly a helpful decision criterion for students.

The German CHE ranking takes a different approach. It interrogates Professoren and students in various categories, for example, the study situation, international orientation or practical orientation.

The care is important

In addition, facts such as the caring ratio and the number of students who are studying in regular study time play a role.
