The Times Higher Education list, published each year since 2004, is among the world's most influential rankings of colleges and universities, which are judged based on 13 key performance indicators grouped into five thematic areas:

  • Teaching, which examines the reputation of the school's academic instruction as well as student-to-teacher ratios, the ratio of doctoral degrees to bachelor degrees awarded, the number of faculty who hold doctorates, and the income of academic staff
  • Research, which analyzes the number of publications per staff member at an institution, the research income of the school, and the reputation of that research
  • Citations, which examines the school's research influence
  • Industry income, which measures knowledge transfer by quantifying the income generated by research partnerships with private industries
  • International outlook, which weighs the percentage of international staff, students, and co-authorship to determine a school's ability to attract students, faculty, and staff from around the world
