CWUR (Center for World University Rankings)

In the ranking of the world’s best universities provided by The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) 2018–2019, Palacký University Olomouc placed 572th in the overall ranking of 2000 universities. In addition to the UP, another 12 Czech universities have entered the rangings. Compared with them, Palacký University finished third behind Charles University and Masaryk University.

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 first time this year twice as many universities were evaluated, that is 2000.
