Top 10 Best Universities in Romania |Check Which One is Number One

What are the most popular Universities in Romania? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2019 Romanian University Ranking of 80 recognized Romanian higher-education institutions meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate Romanian higher education-related organization
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format

Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Romanian Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
