The CHE University Ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed university ranking in German-speaking countries. More than 300 higher education institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Netherlands are regularly assessed by the Centre for Higher Education (Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung). Institutions are not ranked by calculating a total score, but are instead evaluated in different areas. In addition to looking at facts relating to programs of study, teaching, equipment, and research, the Ranking also takes opinions from more than 250,000 students on the study conditions at their institution into account.
