Office of Internationalization and Ranking

Major international university ranking institutions with which our university shares data:

During the calendar period they determine each year, certain data requests for one (or two) previous academic years are compiled and reported to the above mentioned organizations.

Besides there are other university rankings that we do not directly share our data, but follow their ranking results and present their results as detailed reports:  

URAP (University Ranking by Academic Performance), CWTS Leiden Ranking, Webometrics (Ranking of Web Universities), Scimago (SCImago Journal & Country Rank), U.S. News and World Report - Best Global Universities Rankings, RUR (Round University Ranking), CWUR (Center for World University Rankings)

The annual evaluation reports of Hacettepe University, in which university ranking institutions evaluate the strongest and weakest indicators of the ranking results, are discussed and analyzed in order to contribute to strategic plannings and archived. 

The annual conferences, masterclasses and workshops of international university ranking organizations are followed and our University is represented in these activities.
