The Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and the University of Barcelona (UB) have made it into the world’s top 200 according to the prestigious QS World University Rankings 2023. The annual list sets publicly funded UAB in the 178th overall position, its highest since 2015. Its international research network, the citations per faculty and the academic reputation have been well regarded, while the faculty student ratio, the employment outcomes and the international students ratio have been seen as issues yet to work on.

UAB is followed closely by another Catalan public university, University of Barcelona (UB), ranked 184th. International research network and academic reputation of UB are also well regarded, and employment outcomes are higher than UAB’s. However, the faculty student ratio, the international students ratio and the employer reputation are the weakest aspects of the center, according to the annual report.

The world ranking also includes other Catalan universities: Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) in 233rd place; Polytechnic University of Catalonia in 343rd position; Ramon Llull University (URL) between 651st and 700th; and Rovira i Virgili University (URV) between 751st and 800th.

Topping the global ranking, Massachusets Institute Technology (MIT), came first again, like in the ten previous editions. University of Cambridge, Stanford University, University of Oxford, and Harvard University follow MIT on top of the list.
