The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019 includes more than 1,250 universities, making it our biggest international league table to date.

It is the only global university performance table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. We use 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

The calculation of the rankings for 2019 has been audited by professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), making these the only global university rankings to be subjected to full, independent scrutiny of this nature.

This year’s list of the best universities in the world is led by the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge for the second year in a row.

Yale University is the only newcomer to the top 10, joining at eighth place, up from 12th. Meanwhile, Switzerland’s ETH Zurich has fallen out of this elite group, dropping from joint 10th to 11th place.

Tsinghua University is now the top university in Asia, after rising eight places to 22nd, becoming the first Chinese institution to lead the continent under the current methodology (since 2011). China as a whole has increased its standing, driven by improvements in citation impact.

Elsewhere in Asia, Japan has overtaken the UK as the second most-represented nation in the world, with 103 institutions (the UK has 98).

There is also good news for France, which has a top 50 university for the first time since 2011, while several leading universities in Italy, Spain and Canada have risen. Overall, 86 countries are represented, including Iraq, Jamaica, Nepal, Tanzania and Kazakhstan for the first time.

China is now home to the best university in Asia, while France’s Sorbonne University is the highest-ranked newcomer in the table

China has stepped up its ascent of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, with the country now home to the top institution in Asia for the first time under the current methodology.

Tsinghua University has overtaken the National University of Singapore to become the best university in Asia in the THE World University Rankings 2019 after rising eight places to 22nd, representing the greatest rise in the top 30. NUS dropped from joint 22nd to 23rd.

The rise means that Tsinghua now also outranks its Beijing neighbour Peking University for the first time in the global table, although Tsinghua has consistently had greater prominence in the THE World Reputation Rankings.

It is the first time that a Chinese university has topped Asia’s representatives under the current methodology of the world rankings (since 2011). NUS led the continent between 2016 and 2018, while the University of Tokyo was pre-eminent between 2011 and 2015.

Over the past year, Tsinghua has improved its citation impact, increased its institutional income and grown its international outlook, with greater shares of international staff, students and co-authored publications.

Yang Bin, vice-president for international affairs and provost at Tsinghua, said that recent efforts to increase internationalisation and improve the quality of the university’s teaching and research systems have “helped to escalate Tsinghua’s excellence and global reputation”.
