In the latest QS World University Rankings 2018, Vytautas Magnus University was ranked among the top 3 per cent universities of the world. VMU once again proved to be the leading university in Lithuania by its internationality and was ranked by QS as one of four best universities in the country.
VMU was ranked “401+” in all six categories of the QS ranking: academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, faculty students, international faculty, and international students. Compared to last year, the university’s results were improved in five categories.
“Out of about 26,000 universities currently in the world, we performed among the top 3 per cent. This is a significant achievement for Lithuanian universities, as the GDP portion for education is just 1.3 per cent; for comparison, it is 2.2 per cent in Estonia. International rating experts say that all countries with universities in the top 1,000 can be proud of their higher education schools. Over the recent years in Lithuania, VMU and three other universities have belonged to this group of “the best”. QS ranking confirms yet again that VMU–as a classical, wide-spanning liberal arts university–is visible and recognized globally. As the most international university of Lithuania and the region, we will continue to cooperate in various areas with our partners and remain active participants in global processes”, Prof. Ineta Dabašinskienė, VMU Vice-Rector for International Relations, said.
