FAU is ranked among the top 20 worldwide in the citations per researcher category.

FAU remains at the top of one of the most prestigious categories in the QS World University Ranking. The University is again at the top of the national ranking this year for the number of citations per faculty. On an international level, FAU is ranked in the top 20 (ranked 19th) in this category for the first time. In the overall ranking, FAU retains its 18th position on a national level.

Another reason to celebrate: FAU is also among the national top 20 (ranked 20th) in the ‘Academic Reputation’ category, which measures universities’ standing among researchers. FAU has also retained its position among the top 30 percent of the universities listed in the QS Ranking worldwide.

The QS World University Ranking published by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) compares universities from around the globe in terms of their reputation among researchers and employers, number of citations per researcher, student-to-faculty ratio, and the percentage of international students and staff. Quacquarelli Symonds uses a mixture of statistics and surveys of researchers and HR managers to compile its ranking.
