As is the case every year, Dutch universities are strongly represented, with seven in the top 100. Just like last year, the UvA is the second highest ranked Dutch university in the ranking. Wageningen University & Research has the highest ranking of any Dutch institution, coming in 53th. The top three in the world are made up of University of Oxford, California Institute of Technology and Harvard University, respectively.
The Times Higher Education Rankings are based on 13 performance indicators distributed over five categories: teaching (30%), research (30%), citations (30%), international outlook (7.5%) and industry income (2.5%). As was the case last year, the UvA recorded its highest scores in citations and international outlook.
