Sapientia is the 20th best university in Romania

Sapientia University has been named the 20th best university in Romania, according to this year’s uniRank study. The international classification is produced and published yearly by independent research institutions. UniRank’s classification features, among higher education institutions from several countries, universities from Romania as well.

According to the study, Sapientia University – which has been founded only 19 years ago – ranks as 20th in the classification of 79 universities in Romania. Sapientia has surpassed other renowned institutions, such as the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Cluj-Napoca, the University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science and Technology of Târgu-Mureș or the Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad. The ranking is lead by the Babeș–Bolyai University.

In last year’s classification Sapientia University was 24th, meaning that in only one year it has risen four places – stated Gyöngyvér Mara, vice-rector of the institution, emphasizing the fact that the study is mainly based on the participation of students and tutors of the universities in scientific life. From this point of view Sapientia University has excellent results, since in the recent past the activity of many tutors “has become more visible on international level”, and their scientific work has been published in prestigious journals.

At the same time, students came home from national and international scientific conferences with exceptional results – explained the vice-rector. Other indicators used to assess the institutions were: the number of tutors related to the number of students within each university, the quality of education, the variety of the offered courses, the results obtained by the students and the employment possibilities of graduated students on the labour market.  

Gyöngyvér Mara has declared to be very proud of the achieved result, stating that in the future the aim of the management will be the same as before: to offer high-quality education in Hungarian to all those students who wish to stay in Romania and become active members of the society.

This 20th place refers to the Sapientia University as a whole, including all three faculties in Miercurea-Ciuc, Târgu-Mureș and Cluj-Napoca, as well as the study programme in Sfântu-Gheorghe.
