Recently, the Knowledge and Development Foundation publicly presented data from the sixth edition of their university rankings. This is the ranking that covers the most Spanish universities. In this edition, 73 of the 81 universities that give degrees in Spain were included.
Our university was seen as a high-performer in many aspects evaluated by the rankings. They specifically highlighted two topics related to our international outlook: student mobility and foreign faculty.
The foreign faculty item looks at the percentage of teaching staff from other countries related to the total number of professors, which gives a measure of how well universities can attract talent and researchers from other countries.
"Student mobility" is measured by the current ratio of undergraduate and graduate students on international exchange programmes and the total number of students enroled. Being a high-performing group in this respect is evidence of the quantity and diversity of the international experiences that students at our university have within their reach.
What's more, in the "Teaching and Learning" section, the University stood out in three places: "graduation rate", "performance rate" and "success rate". The first alludes to the percentage of enroled students who successfully finish their degree studies, while the performance rate refers to the relation between the number of credits completed by students in an academic year and the total number of credits set out in said academic year.
