HOW GOOD ARE UNIVERSITIES AS A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
All of the main Dutch research-intensive universiteiten make the top 100 in the Europe University Rankings 2018. But how do they rank on teaching reputation, graduation rate and the development of students' skills? The Europe Teaching Rankings 2018 labels the teaching expertise.
In the 2018 Europe Teaching Rankings, a pilot ranking, half of the universities’ overall scores are based on the results of the THE European Student Survey. This student engagement survey of more than 30,000 university students analyses engagement, student outcomes, the diversity of institutions’ environments, and the resources that universities have in order to teach effectively.
Overall, the ranking is underpinned by 13 individual performance metrics. More than 240 universities across western and southern Europe have been ranked.
The UK leads the way, with the University of Oxford topping the table, drawing on data on teaching reputation graduation rate and skill development of students. The University of Cambridge holds a second place, the number one in the resources pillar.
In the Netherlands, Hanze University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands (151-200 overall) is ranked first for the environment, which measures the gender balance of staff and students. Overall, eight countries feature in the ranking: UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Portugal and the Republic of Ireland.
These are the rankings of Dutch universities that entered the survey.
