  • Framed by THE performance indicators, including rankings and other critical measures of performance, with credibility globally; 
  • Showcases both stand-alone and comparative performance, helping you identify strengths and weaknesses in your institution’s performance;

Institutions featured in the THE World University Rankings

THEData+ provides an informed overview of how your university compares to similar institutions also in the rankings.

Institutions yet to feature in the THE World University Rankings

THENewData provides an insight into your institution’s characteristics and is based on the same analysis used in our World University Rankings. Even if your university is not currently ranked, it can be benchmarked against those institutions that are ranked.

Our rankings methodology

The data behind our rankings are based on institutional data submitted via our portal, the Academic Reputation Survey and Scopus data provided by the 12.1 million papers in the Elsevier database. This data forms the 13 metrics that feed into the five pillars of the rankings to give you an accurate and credible picture of your global performance. This data can be used to build a better understanding of your institution and its peers – potential partners or competitors – in a global context. The THE World University Rankings have expanded to include approximately 1,000 institutions this year. We are committed to increasing our global view year-on-year to ensure that our rankings remain the most complete in the world.

DataPoints Portal – Home

Get a high-level analysis of how your institution is performing. See how your institution ranks against others across the five pillars in different regions, countries and worldwide, helping you to identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Our metrics allow you to drill down to the granular data behind the rankings, allowing you to identify opportunities for investment.

Dear sirs, Thank you for your information on the web. I am preparing to write a book about the world university rankings and the Japanese universities. Now I have a basic question about your methology: what is the difference among the three incomes in your indicators: institutional, research , and industry income? The institutional means mainly fees at each university,research income means mainly grants from the government, and industry income mainly menas icnome from firms. Is this right? Thank you for your answer in advance and hope to get other information from you from now on. Best regards to you, Kenya Suzuki, free writer in Tokyo
