Hebrew U Ranks Among World's Top 100 Universities

Among 2,000 universities surveyed worldwide, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) ranked 90th in the 2021 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU)’s evaluation of higher education institutions. This marks HU’s best showing since 2016.

For the 19th year in a row, Harvard University topped the ranking list, with Stanford University and the University of Cambridge in the No. 2 and No. 3 seats, respectively. HU is not alone among Israeli universities in the Top 100. Israel’s Weizman Institute of Science placed 92nd and the Technion- Institute of Technology 94th. Last year, HU had placed in the 101-150 category. This year, HU managed to surpass several leading universities in its ranking.

Upon hearing the news, HU President Professor Asher Cohen shared, “The proof is in the pudding. Hebrew University’s ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation has placed it among the world’s leading academic institutions. This ranking is a tribute to the standard of excellence demonstrated day in and day out by Hebrew University staff, students, and professors alike.” (INN / VFI News)
