The University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP) has announced the new annual world ranking.

Each rating system aims at two goals – to inform students and to create evidence for policy-making in education.

It shows that the tendency for a good ranking position of Medical University – Sofia worldwide is stable enough.

In 2019-2020, the latest data from URAP showed that MU-Sofia is ranked first among all universities in Bulgaria and 1174 in the world with 218.05 points from the analyzed 4000 universities, which represent an excerption of 10% of over 40,000 registered high schools from around the world.

With this result, our university strongly outperformed the other two ranked Bulgarian universities: Sofia University – in 1285th place (206.96 points), and at HTMU occupying 2223rd position (125.78 points).

Again this year, the first place out of a total of 2,500 higher education institutions goes to Harvard University, followed by the University of Toronto and University College London.
