Danish university climbs global ranking

Copenhagen Science City-partner University of Copenhagen has jumped from a global 31st place to 27th in the world on the Leiden ranking 2021 list

Copenhagen Science City partner University of Copenhagen is now officially the BEST UNIVERSITY IN EU. On the acknowledged university-ranking list CWTS Leiden Ranking for 2021 the leading Danish university jumped from a global 31st place to 27th.

Outranked only by bigger countries

In Europe only three British universities achieved higher ranking on this year’s list. Chinese and US universities fill the majority of higher spaces. The second highest ranking for an EU university on the list is Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium at number 61. The second highest Nordic university is Swedish Karolinska at 95.

Research excellence features prominently

  • Quantum Technology
