Lund University has climbed from #119 to #90 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016 out today.
The annual ranking evaluates over 1 000 institutions out of the approximately 17 000 internationally recognised universities worldwide. This places Lund in the top 0,5% of the world’s universities.
