Palacký University is one of the world’s top universities. After succeeding in the prestigious World University Rankings 2015–2016 provided by the UK journal The Times Higher Education and thus appearing in the list of 800 most respected universities from 70 countries, yet another success was announced from overseas. UP has scored in the latest edition of the journal U.S. News & World Report, featuring the world-renowned U.S. News Best Global Universities Rankings.

Palacký University has already appeared in the U. S. News Best Global Universities Rankings in 2014, but this year’s placement has shown an improvement. In the new edition of the rankings, UP has stepped up to the 473th position, jumping fifteen positions compared to last year.

In comparison with other Czech universities, Palacký University has demonstrated its dynamic development, since Charles University and Czech Technical University in Prague, also included in last year’s rankings, went down since last year. Masaryk University in Brno has been listed for the first time and placed as number 622.

The Best Global Universities Rankings is based on data and metrics provided by Thomson Reuters InCitesTM research analytics solutions as well as on data submitted by the universities themselves. The top universities rankings employ 12 indicators that measure their academic research performance and international collaboration. Reputation survey, that is, the opinions and evaluations of academics from all over the world, is also accounted for in the U.S. News rankings, similarly to the Times Higher Education rankings.
