Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), one of the best-known companies for certifying higher education activities, produces its world ranking every year. For this year's 20th anniversary ranking, QS has made a number of changes, introducing new indicators and adjusting the percentage weighting of some of its assessment criteria. This way, the international ranking can faithfully reflect the changing trends and priorities in higher education in recent years, and better help prospective students to find the institutions that are right for them. According to the QS World University Rankings 2024, published on 27th of June, the University of Szeged remains the best university in Hungary. In the international field, SZTE ranked 601-610, together with institutions such as Kingston University in London, Drexler University in the US (Philadelphia) and Charles Darwin University in Australia.
