HERanking Higher Education Ranking is an independent initiative aims to encourage higher education institutions to increase their web-content on the internet. The main objective of the project is to provide a platform for HEIs to monitor the development of their presence on the internet. With the help of accreditation bodies, we also encourage HEIs to apply quality assurance for their programmes.

Ranking of higher education institutions is one of the main pillars that are adopted during the evaluation of the work of universities, higher education institutions, research centers, scientific and research institutes and all the other institutions that carry the "impression" of higher education regardless of its label (university - institute - co llege - school - academy). This identity of the HEI, as you know, is ambiguous and foggy.

HERanking relies on performing mathematical calculations that ultimately lead to a numerical (numerical) value which is calculated, compared and estimated with values ??of other universities. This value calculates the ranking of local, regional and international universities. Whenever the HEIs is below the lowest value, it would have a “Not set Heranking”.

Extra categories are added which are Language Schools and Accreditation Bodies.
