In the annual Times Higher Education World University Rankings, the FAU was again listed among the top 200 universities for 2020.

In the current edition, 1396 top universities were evaluated based on 13 indicators relevant to teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook.

The complete ranking is available on the Times Higher Education website.
