The Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings 2014 will be published on Wednesday 18 June 2014.
The rankings, powered by data from Thomson Reuters, will go live on line at 21.00 BST on 18 June (04.00 on Thursday 19 June in Beijing, China). The results and analysis will also be published in a special print supplement with Times Higher Education magazine on 19 June.
Phil Baty, editor of THE’s global portfolio of rankings, said: “The scale and speed of Asia’s development in higher education and research is staggering and this prestigious ranking provides an invaluable and rich insight into the exciting, and rapidly changing dynamics of Asia’s top universities”.
The rankings, in their second annual edition, will cover the entire continent of Asia (including Turkey and the Middle East but excluding North Africa and Australasia) and will be based on the same methodology as the overall THE World University Rankings. They use 13 separate performance indicators covering all the core missions of the modern globally focussed university – research, teaching, knowledge transfer and international activity.
The top 100 list includes a total of 13 nations/regions and will make public new data on dozens of institutions not previously featured in the THE World University Rankings.
