Editor's note: March 2022

Following the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, we have taken steps to give Russian universities less prominence in the rankings, and have removed links to their university profiles. Our full statement on Ukraine can be found here.

Editor's note: January 2022

After the publication of the World University Rankings 2022, Imperial College London informed us that an incorrect distribution of their data at the subject level was considered for the ranking calculation. This matter was reviewed under our corrections policy and we agreed, at our discretion, to re-calculate Imperial College London’s score based on a corrected data submission at the subject level. The amendments have not affected Imperial College London’s rank in the World University Rankings, but have impacted their subject rankings in: Clinical and Health (4th after correction; it was 3rd before) and Physical Sciences (13th after correction; it was joint 11th before). Imperial College London previously did not appear in the Computer Science subject ranking but now features at 11th place, while it has been removed from the Business and Economics and Education subject rankings as it no longer meets the eligibility criteria for these tables.

As per THE's rankings correction policy, the amendment made only affects the university in question. We do not rerun the complete ranking. All other universities maintain their original rank.
