* This ranking is for the year 2020. See the newest, 2021, ranking here: https://snmcgannon.com/2021/10/27/ranking-of-finnish-universities-2021/
This is a ranking of the top universities in Finland ranked relative to each other for the year 2020-21.
The ranking was created by using metadata sourced from the four prominent rankings of world universities (each ranking released in 2020): Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), Times Higher Education (THE), U.S. News & World Report (USNWR), and Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
Rank was determined on each list for every Finnish university ranked on any list. Then for each university all its rank placements were averaged across lists to create the new list of average ranking for each university. The universities were then ranked according to their average ranking. The university with the highest average is thus ranked 1st, the one with the second highest average 2nd, and so on.
Finally, the results were tabled, and are shown below (Table 1.). The leftmost column shows rank based on average, the middle column shows the institution ranked, and the rightmost column shows overall average among world universities.
