There is no final ranking list of the participating universities. Instead, the CHE classifies the universities and universities of applied sciences etc. into three groups (top, middle and bottom groups) according to indicators and criteria it has developed itself.

According to the CHE, the ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed university comparison in the German-speaking world, with around 120,000 students surveyed and more than 300 universities and universities of applied sciences ("Fachhochschulen") as well as dual universities and universities of cooperative education ("Berufsakademien") examined: www.zeit.de/che-ranking [in German]
