Polish universities climb to the highest ever position in the latest QS World University Ranking

The newest edition of the prestigious QS World University Ranking reveals that Poland’s two most renowned universities now occupy their highest-ever positions, joining the select group of the 300 best universities in the world for the first time.

The University of Warsaw climbed from the 308th this year to the 284th position, while the Jagiellonian University in Kraków also improved its ranking – from the 309th to the 293rd position. 

Similarly to last year,  thirteen other Polish institutions made it to the top 1000. These include Life Sciences in Poznań, the Warsaw University of Technology, AGH University of Science and Technology, and the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, among others. 

Apart from the QS World University Ranking, there are two other prestigious rankings that classify higher education institutions across the world. One of them is the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) – better known as the Shanghai Ranking, which included 10 Polish universities among its 1000 best. The other one is the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The latter includes only the two top Polish universities in its classification.
