Unlike other major university rankings, THE focuses not on entry and graduation rates, but on “big picture” factors like global scholarship and reputation, explained Forbes.

Here’s how THE calculates the rankings:

  • Teaching — the learning environment (30%)
  • Research — volume, income and reputation (30%)
  • Citations — research influence (30%)
  • Industry income — innovation (2.5%)
  • International outlook — staff, students and research (7.5%)
