publications (size normalised), and external research income. In
teaching and learning, it has a perfect score in graduating on time

U-Multirank is an independent ranking prepared with seed funding from

ranking of higher education institutions, comparing the performances of
higher education institutions in five broad dimensions of university
activity including teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer,
