Press release, 2 December 2019

The University of Mannheim is an excellent place to study Psychology at master’s level. This is shown by the current CHE University Ranking of master’s programs, which places Mannheim in the leading group in all eight categories. No other German university managed to achieve such good results.

In order to rank the universities, the CHE regularly asks enrolled students for their opinions on different criteria. In the categories “general study situation”, “course offer”, “organization of studies”, “support during studies”, “support through teaching staff”, “research orientation”, “support in studying abroad”, and “transition to master's studies”, the University of Mannheim scores higher than the German average, often significantly so (especially regarding the general study situation, studying abroad, and research orientation).

The CHE University Ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed university ranking in German-speaking countries. It is based on student surveys which are regularly carried out at more than 300 higher education institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands by the Centre for Higher Education.

You can find the results of the ranking online at and in the print edition 1/2020 of the ZEIT Campus magazine.
