In this 2021 edition, the criteria for developing the ranking have been academic reputation, reputation among employers, teaching staff /student ratio, impact of research, and number of international students and teachers.
The UAH ranks as the first Spanish public university to attract international students and is one of the 200 best in the world in this field (position 190).
According to the results, the UAH also stands out in the number of teachers in relation to students (position 265 among universities worldwide) as it has a ratio of 8 students per teacher, allowing direct and permanent contact between both. In addition, we must not forget the success and high employability rate that students obtain, since to complete their training, the University has agreements with more than 5.000 companies.
