Times Higher Education World University Rankings

Check how your university fares on the global map

We know it can be overwhelming to shortlist the right university from a pool of options available. Considering that you need to look at several indicators before settling on your final list, it is a good idea to refer the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings of your preferred university or institution.

What is THE Ranking

THE University Rankings is an annual publication of university rankings by the Times Higher Education magazine. It was initially published in collaboration with Quacquarellu Symonds (QS) and was known as the Times Higher Education – QS World University Rankings until 2009 when both decided to publish their own versions.

The methodology of QS remained the same whereas THE implemented a new ranking system with Thomson Reuters to develop their chart of top universities in the world. It is one of the three most popular rankings in the world along with QS World Ranking and Academic Ranking of World Universities.

THE Ranking Methodology

The influencers under this ranking include teaching (30%), research (30%), citation (30%), industry connections (2.5%), and international outlook (7.5%). In 2021, THE evaluated 1,500 universities across 93 countries and regions. The next THE World University Ranking is expected to come out in September.
