Our University placed 10th among universities: perspektywy.pl/e-book/#page38 and 30th among all higher education institutions in the Perspektywy University Ranking 2023.
The University of Silesia took 1st place in the staff exchange category (mobility) as part of the Erasmus+ programme. This indicator was introduced this year. It illustrates the frequency of foreign exchange trips taken by academics – the proportion of people taking advantage of mobility options to the overall number of academic staff.
We can also be proud of placing 9th in the Top 10 category (Publications in Top 10 Journal Percentiles). In turn, this is an indicator of the extent to which the university’s publications are present in the top 10% of most cited journals in the world. Considering the groups of indicators, we rank 5th among academic universities in the scientific potential category and 6th = (together with the University of Wrocław) in the internationalisation category.
