The Elsevier ranking is a respected annual ranking of all national higher education institutes and their study programmes. The students’ opinions submitted in the National Student Survey on the quality of education and organisation is a major component of the Elsevier ranking.

Elsevier's Best Studies 2019 puts Radboud University in second place in the ranking of best traditional universities in the Netherlands. For the first time, Elsevier will not publish a list of the best programmes in 2019. Only programmes that scored above average in the last three years of the five year examination receive a gold medal if they were among the best in their field in those years. This is the case for the Bachelor's programme in Classical Languages (Dutch) at the Faculty of Arts.
