CWUR (Center for World University Rankings)

In the ranking of the world's best universities compiled by The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) 2022–2023, Palacký University has reached its highest position to date, ranking 566th. In addition to UP, 11 other Czech universities made it into the ranking. In the Czech Republic, the University of Olomouc is ranked 3rd after Charles University and Masaryk University, and it holds the same position in the Czech Republic in the field of research development, while globally it is ranked 533rd.

The Centre for World University Rankings has adapted the methodology for 2019–2020 to place the same emphasis on the educational environment and research and now evaluates universities on the basis of four metrics: Quality of education (25%), employment of graduates (25%), quality of staff (10%), and research performance (40%). This includes research (10%), high quality publications (10%), number of research works in influential journals (10%) and citation (10%) The assesment is based primarily on Thomson Reuters database and tracks data up to a decade back. It works only with available data, not including the university's reputation, which forms a substantial part of other prestigious rankings. CWUR has been publishing the ranking of 1000 most influential universities since 2014 and for the fourth time this year evaluated 2000 universities.
