Crimson and gold shone as Cebu Normal University (CNU) made it to the sixth place in uniRank’s 2021 Central Visayas University Ranking.
The non-academic ranking was initiated by uniRank, a leading international higher education institutions (HEIs) directory and search engine, which featured reviews and rankings of over 13,800 officially recognized universities and colleges in 200 countries.
Listed as global university ranking by the International Ranking Expert Group (IREG) Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence, uniRank aims to provide valid, unbiased, and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the universities themselves.
According to the directory’s website, it included worldwide higher education institutions which satisfied the following requirements: (1) officially recognized, licensed and/or accredited by national or regional bodies such as Ministries of Higher Education or government-recognized accrediting organizations; (2) officially licensed or authorized to grant at least four-year undergraduate degrees (Bachelor’s Degrees) and/or postgraduate degrees (Master’s and Doctoral Degrees); and (3) provide higher education courses mainly in a traditional face-to-face learning format delivered through on-site facilities.
In terms of methodology, uniRank made use of five independent web metrics extracted from four different web intelligence sources, which included Moz Domain Authority, Alexa Global Rank, SimilarWeb Global Rank, Majestic Referring Domains, and Majestic Trust Flow.
Among the HEIs which made it to the top 10 were Siliman University, University of San Carlos, University of San Jose Recoletos, University of Cebu, Southwestern University, Cebu Doctors’ University, Cebu Technological University, Cebu Institute of Technology, and Holy Name University.
