The Times Higher Education (THE) has published on Wednesday, 28 October, the results of the World University Rankings 2021 by Subject, listing the broad areas with the best performances in the top universities in the world. The Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) was one of the 1.512 universities evaluated and it was best ranked in the areas of Health and Education. In both subjects, UFSC was ranked 301-400 overall and was among the eight best universities in Brazil.

The THE is a British magazine that publishes news and articles related to higher education. Annually, THE releases one of the most comprehensive, balanced and reliable set of rankings in the world. The rankings are based on 13 indicators that measure an institution’s performance across four areas: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. In the last edition, published in September, UFSC was placed among the eight best universities in the country.

“The importance of this type of ranking for institutional strategic planning should be highlighted. They serve as points of orientation so that we can identify our strengths and work with those areas of knowledge that need closer attention. Undoubtedly, internationalization plays a key role in strengthening these areas by choosing strategic partnerships, for example”, says the Secretary for International Relations at UFSC, Lincoln Fernandes.
