The CENSIS ranking 2021/2022 ranked the University of Trento second in the general ranking and in the top position in the ranking of 16 medium-sized universities, those with 10,000 to 20,000 students, with a final score of 97.3.
Universities (both state and private universities, divided by category based on their size, on a scale ranging from 66 to 110) and the university system are evaluated based on 6 sets of indicators: services, scholarships and other student aid, facilities, communication and digital services, internationalisation and graduate employability.
The University of Trento obtained many more points than in the previous edition in particular for its performance in the "internationalization" area, but maintained excellent scores in "communication and digital services" and "employability". Below are some more details on the results achieved in these areas:
- internationalisation is the sum of different parameters (number of foreign students on the total number of enrolled students, students who spent a period of study in a foreign country on the total number of enrolled students, English-taught courses on the total number of courses, investments in international mobility for students). UniTrento scored 108 points, 16 more than in 2020 (when it obtained 92 points);
- communication and digital services considers the characteristics and features of the university websites, of the official social media profiles and of the response efficiency of these channels. UniTrento obtained 103 points;
- employability is based on the Almalaurea surveys on the employment condition of graduates 1 year after graduation. UniTrento confirmed the results of the previous edition (103 points).

The evaluation of the different discipline areas of Italian state universities examines both undergraduate and graduate programmes and is based on 2 sets of indicators: student progress (number of students who continue from 1st to 2nd year; “on-track” students; number of students who graduate on time) and internationalisation (student mobility after graduation; number of universities involved in student mobility programmes; percentage of foreign students).
Three disciplinary areas - science, computer science and ICT, social and political science - offer the best undergraduate degrees. The Master's degree in Psychology is confirmed in top position again, since the 2018/2019 edition of the ranking.
