Marnix Broer of “Many rankings are based on the amount of tuition fees, the number of publications by professors or other variables in which money or reputation plays the largest role. Our ranking includes topics that students find important. This varies from safety and diversity to the quality of (online) lessons, the food and the facilities. But also, for example, the atmosphere and finding a date.”
