This year, for the first time, our university has participated in the Positive Impact Rating (PIR).

PIR is a Swiss Association, which governs the rating. The purpose of the PIR is to capture the voice of students to define the positive impact of schools, move from competition to collaboration and provide a tool for change.

A total of 153 respondents from our University have participated in the survey. The overall score of the survey is 7.1, which places our University at Level 3 – progressing (a school making progress) – 5.9-7.3. The University lacked only 0.3 points to reach Level 4 (transforming).

The overall PIR score is used to position the school on one of five levels:

Level Range Difference Characterization
Level 1 1.0 – 4.2 Beginning
Level 2 4.3 – 5.8 1.5 points Emerging
Level 3 5.9 – 7.3 1.4 points Progressing
Level 4 7.4 – 8.7 1.3 points Transforming
Level 5 8.8 – 10 1.2 points Pioneering


By acting in favour of the environment, we can make a positive impact on the world.
