This is the lowest position for the UG in the university rankings since 2012. In 2015, they were in 90th place.

The annual list is composed mainly on the basis of data gathered through questionnaires, which determine more than half of the final score. The reputation of the educational institutes, which is also determined through questionnaires, is an important part of the score as well.

Top 100

TU Delft and the University of Amsterdam remain the only two Dutch universities in the top 100 of the QS Rankings. After years of rising, Delft has gone down to 57th place, while the UvA has once again gone up: from 64th to 61st place. Of the other Dutch universities, seven have gone down in the rankings, including the UG. 

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is at the top of the list, followed by Harvard and Stanford.
