The Universitat Ramon Llull (URL), of which La Salle-URL is one of its founding members, has been included for the first time in the world ranking of universities under 50 years old, the prestigious THE Young University Rankings that publishes and coordinates the magazine Times Higher Education (THE). The URL has been ranked as the second best young Spanish university, the 62nd in Europe and the 121st in the world.

The THE Young University Rankings of 2022 has classified 539 universities from 74 countries, of which 32 are Spanish. The ranking is based on 13 indicators and measures the performance of institutions in five weighted areas: teaching (30%), research (30%), citations (30%), international projection (7.5%) and knowledge transfer (2.5%). The URL stands out in the areas of international projection and citations, obtaining very good scores in the rest of the indicators as well.

These good results are added to the good position achieved by the URL in the THE World University Rankings 2022, in which the Universitat Ramon Llull was classified in the 401-500 range in the world and reached 6th position in Spain and 4th in Catalonia.
