Best Universities in Perù

university of lima peru rankingHow to Choose a Good University In Peru:

In 2010, over 352,001 students in the country finished high school, and according to The Organization of Ibero-American States’ research “Percepción de los jóvenes sobre ciencia y la profesión científica en Lima Metropolitana” dated that year, 96% of students said they are interested in a university career, because a degree is considered a plus when looking for a job.

This interest has been reflected on the comparative results of the 2010 University Census as opposed to the 1996 University Census. The number of undergraduate university students increased considerably from 335,714 to 782,970, which is related to the excessive increase of the number of universities from 57 to 100.

 

 

In that period, private universities increased the most, from 29 to 65, while public universities increased from 28 to 35. It is a historic fact that 33.7% of students who finished high school went to Peruvian universities the very next year.
But more universities did not mean better universities.

There was a lack of qualified faculty and appropriate course structure, as well as building and equipment limitations for teaching. This has not been corrected, regulated or punished by the Peruvian university control organ, the Asamblea Nacional de Rectores – ANR, because it is also part of the problem. Therefore, it is necessary to set up a ranking with the best universities in the country.

 

 

América Economía magazine’s online version had devised an evaluation methodology for a ranking, but only eight out of sixty universities responded.

 

 

 

Most refused to answer, so user opinion polls and head hunters were later used, and these are the results:

1. Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. Lima.
2. Universidad del Pacifico. Lima.
3. Universidad de Lima. Lima.
4. Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. Lima.
5. Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería. Lima.
6. Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. Lima.
7. Universidad de Piura. Lima.
8. Universidad Nacional Agraria la Molina. Lima.
9. Universidad San Martin de Porres. Lima.
10. Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas. Lima.
11. Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola. Lima.
12. Universidad ESAN. Lima.
13. Universidad Nacional Federico Villareal. Lima.
14. Universidad Ricardo Palma. Lima.
15. Universidad Nacional de San Agustín – Arequipa

The QS World University Ranking 2010 – 2011 does not include Peruvian universities, except for Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, which appears above the 600 rank. But in the 2005 ranking, it was above the 418 place.

In the online World University Ranking, on a sample of 12,000 universities, the results are:
