THE Times Higher Education has been providing trusted performance data on universities for students and their families, academics, university leaders, governments and industry, since We create university rankings to assess university performance on the global stage and to provide a resource for readers to understand the different missions and successes of higher education institutions. It is the only global university league table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching the learning environment ; research volume, income and reputation ; citations research influence ; industry income knowledge transfer and international outlook staff, students and research. It uses 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons. The overall list is accompanied by 11 subject-specific rankings. We also draw on the rich database behind the World University Rankings to publish a series of regional and thematic rankings, offering deeper insights into a wider range of universities against a wider range of missions. Our teaching rankings were developed to offer a different assessment of excellence in higher education, and to enable us to rank institutions that are often not research-focused enough to be eligible for the World University Rankings.
