Excellence ranking

Biology in Uppsala in late October 2010 got a renewed Excellence Ranking by the German Centre for Higher Education Development (CHE). Their ranking is specifically aimed as a guide for students who, after obtaining a Bachelor’s degree, intend to continue their studies with a Master’s programme at a European university but who have no idea which programme to choose or where to attend. Uppsala was ranked no 1 in Europe for student contentment.
