Does your university have the best programmers?

Join University CodeSprint, an exclusive university-level coding competition, and represent your school to prove how well students and graduates from your school can code!

We want to learn which schools around the world train the best programmers. Global university ranking reports use school reputation, the number of publications and citations published within a given year and other subjective ranking criteria. We want to learn which schools have the best programmers purely based on their skill. Join University CodeSprint and invite your friends and alumni to represent your school. We’ll have separate leaderboards for current students and alumni.

HackerRank aims at training and rewarding students based on their merit, and to level the playing field for students from all over the world, we have introduced our Interview Preparation Kit, a one-stop destination comprising of everything you need to prepare for coding interviews, with learnings from 1000+ companies hiring programmers.

How it works:

University CodeSprint will have 3 leaderboards: Individual Leaderboard, School Leaderboard and Alumni Leaderboard.

A School must have at least 10 students participating in University CodeSprint in order for the school to be listed on the School Leaderboard. School rank will be determined by the sum of the top 10 participant ranks of the represented school.

Participants are ranked by score. If two participants have the same score, the tie is broken by the time taken for making the last correct submission.


University CodeSprint is an online code competition open to all current university level students worldwide.

Winners will be required to give proof that they are currently enrolled in the university they represented during University CodeSprint.

This is an individual participation contest.

Any case of code plagiarism will result in disqualification.

Code directly from our platform, which supports over 30 languages. Learn more here.
