ARWU 2023

The Shanghai ranking reaffirms the UPV as the best polytechnic in Spain for yet another year

[ 27/10/2023 ]

The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), popularly known as the Shanghai ranking and considered internationally as the most prestigious indicator of universities in the world due to the objectivity of its methodology, has once again recognised the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) as the best polytechnic in Spain.

In its results, made public a few minutes ago, ARWU places the institution directed by José E. Capilla as the only Spanish polytechnic among the 500 best universities in the world. The podium is completed by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), ranked 601-700, and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), ranked 701-800.

National top 10

Created in 2003, ARWU includes the UPV in the international university elite for the 19th consecutive time and also places it in the top 10 of all universities in the country, ranking it eighth among all higher education institutions, both public and private, in Spain.

Internationally recognised by all top-level rankings

Along with ARWU 2023, the other two main world university rankings, QS and THE, also endorse the UPV's level. Not in vain, at the end of June, the QS World University Rankings included the UPV in the top 500 worldwide for another year, and in its rankings by subject, it was also named as the best university in Spain to study Art and Design as well as Agri-Food and Forestry Engineering.

A few weeks earlier, Times Higher Education (THE) magazine recognised the UPV as one of the 200 universities with the greatest social and economic impact in the world, as well as including it in the top 100 in up to 5 different SDGs and as the 7th best university in the world in one of them, SDG 8, Decent Work and Economic Growth.

This information on the UPV's educational quality is especially valued by students when choosing their future. Not surprisingly, for the academic year that starts in less than a month, the UPV has once again covered 100% of the places offered, and 3 of the 5 highest cut-off marks in the Valencian Community belong to degrees taught at the Valencian Polytechnic, among them, number 1, corresponding to the Double Degree in Computer Engineering and Mathematics (13.635).
