EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in Europe ranked based on their research performance in Psychology. A graph of 555M citations received by 24.7M academic papers made by 1,390 universities in Europe was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.
