Athens University breaks into top 200 in new international rankings


The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (EKPA) has broken into the top 200 rankings of the world’s best universities, collated by the global ranking system, Webometrics.

Out of 12,000 Universities, EKPA ranked 180th worldwide, with EKPA rector Thanos Dimopoulos claiming it is the first Greek university to ever place in the top 200.

Following the Athens University is the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 205th, the National Technical University of Athens in 329th, while the top five are closed by the University of Patras in 533rd and the University of Ioannina in 581st.

The University of Athens also reached the 73rd spot in European university rankings.

The ranking is compiled by the Cybermetrics Lab, a research team of the Higher Scientific Research Council of Spain. Universities are evaluated for three criteria: the number of external internet links to the institution’s content, the number of citations to the university’s work by other researchers, and the percentage of publications included in the top 10% of those cited.
