World University Rankings 2013-2014
Source: Times Higher Education
From Analysis 2012-2013:
The publication of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings has become one of the key annual events in the international higher education calendar. Since their first appearance in 2004, these global university league tables have been recognised as the world's most authoritative source of broad comparative performance information on universities.
They are now regularly used by undergraduate and postgraduate students to help select degree courses, by academics to inform career decisions, by research teams to identify new collaborative partners, and by university managers to benchmark their performance and set strategic priorities. Moreover, as nations across the globe focus on the establishment of world-class universities as essential elements of a dynamic economy, our rankings are increasingly employed as a tool for governments to set national policy.
