The University of Pécs (UP) was included in the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings 2021 and became one of the 1,115 best institutions in 94 countries. The London-based company evaluated the institutions along the lines of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. UP was placed in the same category as universities (201-300), such as the Sorbonne in France and the University of Massachusetts in the USA, and has achieved a better position than higher education institutions such as the University of Parma and the Tokyo University of Science.
Looking at other Hungarian universities in addition to UP, the University of Debrecen and the University of Szeged (both 301-400), Semmelweis (401-600), ELTE and István Széchenyi University (both 601-800) were added to the list. Anglo-Saxon institutions dominate the top five, with three Australian universities and one university in the UK and Canada each, the first being the University of Manchester.
