It is the most comprehensive and detailed ranking in the German-speaking world, with more than 300 universities and over 120,000 students being surveyed. In addition to the facts about the study programs, teaching, and research, the ranking takes into account students' assessments of the study conditions at their universities or business schools. In contrast to other German and Anglo-Saxon rankings, it does not yield individual but group rankings distinguishing between a top, middle, and a bottom group.
