The University of California, San Diego has topped a Times Higher Education table of the world’s best “Golden Age” universities for the third consecutive year.

As well as achieving the top overall score, the US university also received the highest score for research environment in the table, which lists the world’s top universities that were founded in the aftermath of the Second World War (between 1945 and 1967).

Australian National University remains in second place, while the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which tops the international outlook pillar, is third. Seoul National University also holds on to fourth place overall and is number one for teaching environment.

The University of Warwick is now fifth, up from eighth, largely due to receiving a higher citation impact score, while the University of Science and Technology of China is the first university in mainland China to feature in the top 10, claiming seventh place (up from 13th last year). The institution improved on all five areas underpinning the methodology: teaching environment, research environment, citation impact, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

This year’s Golden Age table – so named to reflect what THE describes as the Golden Age in global higher education, characterised by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research – features 271 universities, up from 200 last year.

Japan is once again the most-represented nation with 46 universities, up from 28 last year, but its highest-ranked institution, Teikyo University, only makes 71st place.

The Golden Age ranking uses the same methodology as the THE World University Rankings.
