The Medical University of Gdańsk is recognizable all over the world, for years enjoying high renown among national and international institutions dealing with assessing schools of higher education. The most recent and valid comprehensive assessment conducted by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the quality of the research works or research and development activities pursued by scientific entities three MUG Faculties, i.e. the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Faculty of Pharmacy were awarded grade A, and the Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology UG & MUG was awarded grade A+.
Here is the link to the Ministry’s website page devoted to entity assessment and its valid results: www.nauka.gov.pl.
Worth noting is the fact that MUG has been positively assessed in the ranking of the Educational Foundation ‘Perspektywy’. The list is compiled based on 29 indices grouped around seven criteria: prestige, graduates in the labor market, research potential, research effectiveness, teaching potential, innovation, and internalisation. The multitude of aspects makes the list one of the most extensive educational rankings worldwide. It is also one of four rankings distinguished with the international quality certificate. The methodology is developed by the Chapter chaired by Prof. Michał Kleiber, former president of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The Ranking positions us as follows:
- we are the 1st medical school in Poland,
- we are the 6th Polish university in the general category,
- we are the most international university in the Pomeranian region (15% students from abroad).
Medical University of Gdańsk has been named as one of the world’s top universities, according to the latest edition of the world’s most-consulted university ranking and one of the four biggest international academic rankings – QS World University Rankings. MUG has been ranked 551-600 in the Medicine category in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022 as 2nd among domestic scientific institutions. Harvard University was ranked 1st in terms of world institutions in this category. The University earned its highest scores for the Citations per Paper and H-Index indicators.
Both the national and other countries’ views contribute to the selection of our University future students. The positive image MUG enjoys abroad pertains to the continuously growing share of foreigners among the students who choose MUG as their Alma Mater (we had 15% foreign students).
The positive results of the evaluations conducted by foreign institutions licensed to examine the quality of studies offered abroad are reflected e.g. in foreign accreditations granted to the Medical University of Gdańsk.
In their attempt to make the University recognized even more commonly in the international circles, the MUG’s authorities take effort to obtain all possible recommendations granted by foreign institutions. To that aim, they have created the position of the Officer for Foreign Accreditations in the MUG organizational structure; the officer is in charge of e.g. filing applications for foreign accreditations confirming high academic level of the teaching offered by the Medical University of Gdańsk.
