UniRank ™, the international higher education ranking system, has just announced the ranking of universities that have the most popular websites in 2019.

Established since 2005, UniRank is an organization that evaluates and ranks higher education institutions in the world based on the information of the educational institution that can be measured on the Internet. Exploiting the big data stored on the Internet, this evaluation method allows the application of "quantitative" tools, ensuring its neutrality, minimizing the qualitative indicators which is the weakness of many other rankings. More importantly, UniRank only exploits independent data from the Internet instead of data provided by the higher education institution.

Institutions that are ranked by UniRank must meet the following conditions: being officially recognized, licensed and/or accredited by national or regional bodies or government recognized accrediting organizations; being officially licensed or authorized to grant at least four-year undergraduate degrees (Bachelor's Degrees) and/or postgraduate degrees (Master's and Doctoral Degrees), and offering higher education courses mainly in a traditional face-to-face learning format delivered through on-site facilities. Up to now, UniRank has reviewed and published the rankings of over more than 13,000 officially recognized Universities and Colleges over the world, becoming one of rankings with the largest database in the world.
