KTH among world’s top 100
KTH Royal Institute of Technology has been ranked 98th best seat of learning in the world in the QS World University Rankings. This is more or less the same result as last year, when KTH came 97th.
The slight decline is due to KTH losing ground in the indicators Employer reputation, Faculty/Student Ratio, International faculty ratio and International student ratio.
“Above all, KTH has lost ground in the indicators International faculty ratio and International student ratio, which can mainly be attributed to greater international competition. In other areas, the decline is marginal and KTH is still very strong in Employer reputation, being ranked 74th,” says, KTH’s ranking expert.
According to him, the effects of introducing study fees for students from outside Europe are clearly visible.
“The proportion of international students at KTH, 15 percent, is still relatively high in international terms, however, and is somewhat higher than the previous year, when it was 13 percent.”
Improvements have been made in Academic reputation and KTH has moved up one place in Citations per faculty.
“With a ranking of 162, KTH is strong in Academic reputation,” says Per-Anders Östling.
