European biology, chemistry and physics programmes get assessed.
University College London (UCL) tops a list of biology programmes at 130 high-performing universities in Europe, says a report released on 27 October by the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHE), a non-profit group in Gütersloh, Germany. As part of an effort to promote educational reform, the CHE assessed universities' biology, chemistry and physics programmes. It measured the institutions' number of publications, citations and outstanding researchers; student and staff mobility; presence of Marie Curie fellows and other programmes; and whether researchers had a European Research Council grant or Nobel prize. UCL did well in all categories except mobility.
