Besides providing facts about academic studies, teaching and research, the ranking also features students’ opinions about study conditions at their HEI. The 292-page ZEIT Study Guide contains excerpts from the ranking, and provides answers to key questions regarding entering higher education. The guide also helps prospective students decide which subject is right for them and where best to study this subject, as well as providing advice on how to apply for a place and finance their studies.
Martin Spiewak, Editor-in-Chief of the ZEIT Study Guide: “After completing school, the opportunities open to Abitur holders are endless. This multitude of options may cause uncertainty or overwhelm prospective students, who fear they may take a wrong turn. The aim of our study guide is to offer orientation to young people and to allay their fears.”
Frank Ziegele, Executive Director of the CHE Centre for Higher Education: “The CHE University Ranking asks students what conditions are really like at their university. In this way, current students are given a say, and would-be students receive truly first-hand information about what awaits them at the relevant university.”
