The University, third in Europe in teaching, according to Times Higher Education
The academic center is placed on the podium of excellence together with Oxford and Cambridge
The University of Navarra is the third in Europe in teaching quality according to the latest ranking of Times Higher Education (THE). The academic center rises five positions compared to 2018 and is placed on the podium of excellence in teaching quality. The first two are the University of Oxford and Cambridge.
“THE Europe Teaching Rankings 2019” collects information from interviews conducted with more than 125,000 university students from 18 European countries on topics related to their experience in higher education.
The ranking measures the institution's commitment to its students, the ability to teach classes, the promotion of critical thinking and the interaction with teachers. Opportunities to develop skills that help in the professional career are also evaluated.
It also considers the quality of the institution's services, the teaching environment and access to learning materials. The mobility of Erasmus + students and the proportion of international students are other relevant elements in the study.
“THE Europe Teaching Rankings 2019” includes institutions that offer officially recognized courses and programs (bachelor's degrees and master's or equivalent programs) and with at least 3,000 students enrolled.
The rector of the University of Navarra, Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero, has expressed his satisfaction and thanks to the professors and students of the University of Navarra for being the true protagonists of this ranking. "This result reflects the reality of a great job of the professors and employees of the University, which have made it possible for the student experience at the University of Navarra to be enriching, relevant and memorable."
“On the other hand, I am convinced that the quality of a university depends on the quality of its students. It is they who will change a transformative role in society, to turn this world into a more sustainable and supportive place. We are glad to contribute to Navarra being in the top international positions in university quality", he concluded.
