Galway Bay fm newsroom – University of Galway has slipped slightly down in the latest global rankings.

The CWUR rankings place the top 2,000 universities across the world, out of a list of more than 20 thousand.
In that context, University of Galway finishing at 668th position is far from bad news.

While the best in the world is Harvard University in the US, the only institution in the world awarded a perfect score of 100.
