As part of the ranking, the portal compared all evaluations that students published in 2022 for their respective degree programs. The University of Mannheim achieved a score value of 9.12/10 in the ranking, which makes it the university with the highest rating. In the overall ranking of all universities and higher education institutions in Germany, only the Hof University of Applied Sciences has performed even better.
Almost 80,000 student evaluations received in 2022 were evaluated for the ranking. Mannheim students submitted 350 evaluations. 98 percent of them recommend the degree program they attend at the University of Mannheim to others.
“I am very pleased about the award because it is the result of a very honest ranking,” states Professor Thomas Puhl, President of the University of Mannheim. “At StudyCheck, students describe and rate their program at the respective place of study and thus give prospective students an insight into what the program of study really is like. The fact that our degree programs have been rated so highly shows that we offer excellent courses and content. This is an incentive for us not only to maintain this high standard in teaching, but also to continuously improve it.”
StudyCheck is an online portal founded in 2013 where students as well as graduates can publish testimonials on their programs and study experience. The StudyCheck Award has been presented since 2015. The ranking of the individual higher education institutions and universities is determined by the so-called score value, which is formed by the star rating and the students' recommendation rate.
