In the Times Higher Education's (THE) international university ranking, Germany was the second most represented country featuring four universities in the top 50. 

The most international German university is the Free University of Berlin in 44th place, followed by the University of Bonn (48), the Humboldt University of Berlin (49) and the Technical University of Munich (50). 

The QS Best Student Cities 2017 were determined using various factors including facilities, university rankings, desirability, access to employers, and affordability. Additionally, students and recent graduates were surveyed to provide a student view.

The THE ranking measures the proportion of international staff, students and research papers published with an international co-author, combined with an academic reputation survey.
