“I am pleased that we were able to maintain the good ratings of previous years despite the pandemic restrictions. I am particularly pleased with the very positive student evaluations. They show that our teachers have done a lot right in the forced conversion to hybrid or digital teaching,” said HSU President Prof. Dr. Klaus Beckmann.

The CHE University Ranking is considered to be a particularly comprehensive and detailed ranking in the German-speaking world. In addition to studies, teaching, facilities and research, the ranking also includes students’ assessments of the study conditions at their university. Each subject is re-evaluated every three years. This year, subjects in engineering, linguistics, cultural studies and psychology were examined. For the first time, students were also asked about the use of digital teaching.
