As a result of the emphasis on internationalisation that has driven the U.Porto's strategy of the last decade, the U.Porto can currently be found in most of the main international rankings of higher education and scientific research, figuring in some of them among the 100 best universities in Europe.

From the rankings that privilege institutional prestige to those that classify the quality of education and scientific production, the U.Porto can be found in all of them, and has shown continuous growth over the last few years.

The good performance of the U.Porto as a whole is accompanied by the success of our schools/faculties in specialised rankings. Included among these are the faculties of Architecture, Science, Economics, Engineering, and the Porto Business School, to name a few, all of which rank among the best in the world in their areas of knowledge.
