The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. Universities are excluded from the rankings either don’t teach undergraduates or if their research output amounts to less than 1000 articles in the last four years.
