Each of the rankings relies on different methodology, ranging from self reporting to peer evaluations, and typically evaluate academic institutions as a whole rather than focusing on the performance of individual faculties. Within the Netherlands, individual departments are assessed in the Keuzegids for bachelor and master degree programmes, as well as universities on an institutional level.
