Find your best matching university in four steps!

If you’re wondering where to study, you could consult traditional university rankings in the hope they’ll tell you which are the top universities in the world, but it doesn’t work like that. There’s no such thing as the best university in the world, because everyone wants different things.

That’s why we’ve created this tool to help you discover which university is best for you. By selecting what and where you want to study and saying which factors are most important to you, we suggest the best matching universities for you based on our comprehensive and comparative data.

Of course, we can’t guarantee it will be the best university for you. You will need to make that choice based on far wider criteria, but we can help with that too. Take a look at our articles about how to choose a university and explore the profiles of the universities recommended by our best-matching university tool.

You should also know that when you choose what to study and where, we filter out universities that don’t match, but when you say what’s most important to you, we use that to sort what type of university is best for you and that’s how we give you your own personalised university ranking.
