Editor's note: September 2020

After the ranking production was finalised over the summer of 2020, an erroneous data point was discovered for East China Normal University. THE, in alignment with the university, decided to re-calculate East China Normal University’s score based on a corrected data submission. The university’s corrected position in the overall World University Rankings is in the 351-400 band.

As per THE's rankings correction policy, where an amendment is made, the relevant institution is retrospectively listed in its correct position. We do not rerun the complete ranking and we only amend when a change is positive. All other universities maintain their original rank.

THE is committed to transparency and accountability across all of its rankings.

Our corrections policy is available to view here.
