The University of Porto is the best university in Portugal, according to the latest version of the QS World University Rankings®.

The university has risen 22 places globally since last year’s ranking and is now the joint 301st best university in the world, as well as being the best in the country.

Of the six ranking indicators used to assess universities, the University of Porto scored particularly highly for the number of citations produced per faculty member, for which it is ranked 208th in the world.

This good ranking follows the strong performance of the university in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017, where it is ranked in the top 100 in the world for architecture, civil & structural engineering and sports-related subjects.

This year’s World University Ranking features over 950 universities from 84 different countries. To read more about how it’s compiled, click here, or click here to see this year’s rankings in full.
