Times Higher Education has confirmed the schedule for its portfolio of university rankings for the 2021 calendar year.

After the publication of the 2021 list of the world’s most international universities on 28 January, the next release will be the Emerging Economies University Rankings, which will be launched at the Southern Africa Impact Forum on 9 March. Later that month, the Japan University Rankings will be launched on 25 March, and the results will provide a glimpse into how students in the country have found the experience of teaching and learning during the pandemic.

In April, we will publish the third edition of our Impact Rankings, which will include more than 1,200 universities across 98 countries/regions. The results will be revealed at the virtual Innovation & Impact Summit on 21 April.

June will see the release of the Asia University Rankings and the Young University Rankings. The former will be launched at our Asia Universities Summit on 2 June, while the latter will be revealed at the Young Universities Summit on 23 June.

The Latin America University Rankings will be published on 13 July. We will also be launching a new ranking for the Arab World in July – our first ranking on the region with a bespoke methodology. The full methodology for the inaugural Arab University Rankings will be announced in May.

Our World University Rankings 2021 will be released on 1 September at our flagship World Academic Summit, which will be on the theme ‘How powerful is place?’. This will be followed by the release of our 11 subject rankings tables.

In October, we will release the World Reputation Rankings at the Leadership & Management Summit. Our US College Rankings will be published in the autumn too, at a date to be confirmed.

This whole "rankings" thing is starting to look and sound like the English football league tables. "'Ere we go, 'ere we go, 'ere we go."
The best announcement that could ever come from THE were the one that says "we bin all our useless rankings and do not peddle our vacuous 'awards' to university 'leader' anymore" ;)
