Understanding University Ranking Systems

4icu.org University Web Ranking Methodology

4icu.org is an international higher education search engine and directory reviewing accredited Universities and Colleges around the world. 4icu.org includes 11,307 Colleges and Universities, ranked by web popularity, in 200 countries. 4icu.org is free of charge to both visitors and organisations included. No registration is also required.

The 4icu.org directory includes worldwide higher education organisations which satisfy the following requirements:
- are officially recognized, licensed or accredited by national or regional bodies such as ministries of education and/or recognized higher education accrediting organizations.
- are officialy entitled to grant four-year undergraduate degrees and/or postgraduate degrees.
- provide traditional face-to-face learning facilities, programs and courses.

We adopt the United Nations geographical classification as shown in the webpage "Composition of macro geographical (continental) regions" published by the United Nations Statistics Division.

The current ranking is based upon an algorithm including five unbiased and independent web metrics extracted from three different search engines: Google Page Rank, Alexa Traffic Rank, Majestic Seo Referring Domains, Majestic Seo Citation Flow and Majestic Seo Trust Flow.

the 4icu.org University Web Ranking a non-academic ranking.

The aim of this website is to provide an approximate popularity ranking of world Universities and Colleges based upon the popularity of their websites. This is intended to help international students and academic staff to understand how popular a specific University/College is in a foreign country. The 4icu.org University Web Ranking is not an academic ranking and should not be adopted as the main criteria for selecting a higher education organization where to study.
