What are the target users for the CHE UniversityRanking? The CHE UniversityRanking addresses the needs of those students intending to take up studies but do not yet know where they would like to study. In addition, the ranking serves students who are considering changing to a different HEI or study programme. School leavers whose parents, relatives and friends cannot offer comprehensive advice about the study programme and academic location, will find qualified information about HEIs and study conditions in the ranking. This information is intended to be available to all those interested in taking up a study programme, to lower inhibition thresholds and therefore reduce uncertainties related to the choice of an academic location.
The CHE UniversityRanking also serves the needs of academics and university staff that are interested in the comparative position of their programme or HEI and can be used to help encourage improvement.
