U-Multirank is an international ranking with an alternative approach to university comparison, allowing users to create their own personalized ranking according to their preferences. U-Multirank differs from other rankings in that it does not form a table of the best places, but allows you to compare institutions with a similar institutional profile. U-Multirank was proposed by the European Commission, and in 2014 the first results of the U-Multirank ranking were published, covering around 850 universities from 74 countries. The number of universities rated in the ranking is growing every year, and in 2021, when the rating was published for the eighth time, 1948 universities from 97 countries took part.
LCA has been included in the U-Multirank ranking since 2019. In the past 2020, seven A-grades were obtained in the institutional study assessment in the following areas: Teaching & Learning (two A grades), Research (one A grades), Knowledge Transfer (two A grades), and International Orientation (two A grades).
U-Multirank ranking assesses the performance of universities against more than 30 different criteria, grouped into five areas of activity: 1) Teaching & Learning, 2) Research, 3) Knowledge Transfer, 4) International Orientation, and 5) Regional Engagement. The performance of higher education institutions in each criterion is assessed on a scale from A (very good) to E (poor).
