Top 25 Performing Universities in Student Mobility

In this list we present the U-Multirank 2018 top performers on the indicator ‘student mobility’.

Having an international student body and offering students the opportunity to study part of their degree-programme abroad is an indication of the international orientation of a university. In order to provide a full picture of mobility and international exchange U-Multirank takes into account both incoming and outgoing mobility.

Among the U-Multirank participants, business schools are particularly high performers in student mobility. Almost half of the top 25* performers are business schools or higher education institutions specialised in business and economics. Except Tecnológico de Monterrey all institutions from the list are European. 8 of the top performing institutions are French; 6 each are from Germany and the UK.
