The rapid growth of the international higher education system has seen
global competition emerge among colleges and universities, with each keen
to secure top talent and funding. This has sparked a requirement for new,
data-driven ways to understand and compare these institutions.

How exactly are the World University Rankings calculated?
The rankings are unique in that they score research-focused universities
across all their core missions: research, international outlook, knowledge
transfer, and teaching. Staff are surveyed to share their experiences and
opinions, and these results are then combined with quantitative analysis,
based on research data, to construct the ranking.
