THE is the data provider underpinning university excellence in every continent across the world. As the company behind the world’s most influential university ranking, and with almost five decades of experience as a source of analysis and insight on higher education, we have unparalleled expertise on the trends underpinning university performance globally. THE is the leading provider of higher education data for the world's research-led institutions.
The Times Higher Education World University Ranking is the global performance index that judges research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators are used to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry, and governments.
Universities are excluded from the World University Rankings if they do not teach undergraduates or if their research output amounted to fewer than 1,000 articles between 2011 and 2015 (and a minimum of 150 a year). Universities can also be excluded if 80 percent or more of their activity is exclusively in one of our eight subject areas.
The performance indicators are grouped into five areas with the following weights:
Teaching (the learning environment): 30%
• Reputation survey: 15%
• Staff-to-student ratio: 4.5%
• Doctorate-to-bachelor’s ratio: 2.25%
• Doctorates-awarded- to-academic-staff ratio: 6%
• Institutional income: 2.25%
Research (volume, income and reputation): 30%
• Reputation survey: 18%
• Research income: 6%
• Research productivity: 6%
Citations (research influence): 30%
International outlook (staff, students, research): 7.5%
• International-to-domestic-student ratio: 2.5%
• International-to-domestic-staff ratio: 2.5%
• International collaboration: 2.5%
Industry income (knowledge transfer): 2.5%
The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings employ the world's largest invitation-only academic opinion survey to provide the definitive list of the top 100 most powerful global university brands. A spin-off of the annual World University Rankings, the reputation league table is based on nothing more than subjective judgement - but it is the considered expert judgement of senior, published academics - the people best placed to know the most about excellence in our universities.
The 2019 Times Higher Education World University Rankings table for computer science subjects uses the same rigorous and balanced range of 13 performance indicators as the overall World University Rankings, but the methodology has been recalibrated to suit the individual fields.
This year, we have made a small adjustment to the eligibility criterion for academic staff in the subject tables, which has resulted in more universities being eligible for inclusion.
The 2019 computer science ranking has also expanded to include 684 universities, up from 301 last year.
The University of Oxford leads the table for the first time, after overtaking Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, while ETH Zurich is now in second place.
The National University of Singapore is the highest-ranked Asian university, but drops two places to 15th position.
Meanwhile, Canada’s University of Toronto has joined the top 20, after climbing four places to joint 18th
