The University of Warsaw is the winner of the 25th edition of the Perspektywy University Ranking. The UW was also evaluated the best in the Ranking by Subject.

The Perspektywy University Ranking consists of four complementary rankings: the University Ranking, the Private Universities Ranking, the Public Academies of Applied Sciences and State Higher Vocational Schools Ranking and the Ranking by Subject.


The University of Warsaw was ranked first in this year’s edition of the University Ranking, followed by the Jagiellonian University and Warsaw University of Technology.


“I would like to congratulate the organisers of the 25th anniversary ranking. It is a great pleasure to win during the jubilee gala,” said Professor Alojzy Z. Nowak, the Rector of the University of Warsaw, receiving the distinction. “I believe that competition between our universities on the one hand, and strong collaboration on the other, will allow us to achieve European and even world-class results. That is why, it is so important to continue to develop and function ‘in partnership’. There are no costs in science, these are investments that will certainly pay off.”


The winner of the Private Universities Ranking is Kozminski University in Warsaw. Among universities of technology, the best result was achieved by Warsaw University of Technology.
