2015 Ranking: UniTrento ranks 2nd

Once more, the University of Trento confirms the competitiveness in the national academic landscape, reasserting its position at the top of the rankings of the Grande Guida Università Censis-la Repubblica.

The University of Trento is, indeed, at the 2nd place among the mid-size Universities, improving the score by two points compared to the last-year one (from 97,8 to 99,8)

The score portrays the arithmetic mean of the evaluated expenses for grants and other operation in favour of the students, web structures, internationalisation and services.

We achieved excellent results in both the general evaluation of the University as a whole as well as in the evaluation of didactics and research in the individual disciplines.

On its category (mid-size University, between 10 and 20 thousand enrolled students), the University of Trento is ranked second after Siena, with a score of 99,8. Decisive for the good performance of the University of Trento have been the indicators “structures” (105) and “web” (102).
