World University Rankings 2010

News, debate, social networking and Times Higher Education’s annual World University Rankings are now all happening in one place at www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/worlduniversityrankings2010!

September 23, 2008


We have signed an agreement with Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading research data specialist, to provide all the data for our annual World University Rankings from 2010 and beyond.

We have decided to end our relationship with QS, who will have no further involvement in Times Higher Education's annual World University Rankings.

We will develop a new rankings methodology over the coming months in consultation with our editorial board of higher education experts and Thomson Reuters. But we want your views.

With your help, and with the combined expertise of Times Higher Education and Thomson Reuters, we will publish a revamped and improved Times Higher Education World University Rankings of the top 200 universities, with separate rankings by subject areas, in autumn 2010.

Tell us what you think. What do you think makes up a modern, 21st century world-class university? How would you measure it? What is good about our old (2004-2009) methodology? How would you improve it? Post your views here, and look out for regular updates during the year.
