One in three of all international students use the THE World University Rankings when deciding where to study, according to a survey of 45,000 students by Hobsons, and the world university rankings are rapidly becoming not just a key tool for institutional strategic management, but also a major geopolitical indicator, used by governments across the world to benchmark and monitor national higher education and research policy. In this session, Phil Baty, Editor of the THE World University Rankings since 2008, will provide an in-depth look at the rankings’ data sources and methodology. He will explain the dramatic reforms made to the rankings during 2015, to bring the bulk of ranking data in house, and he will outline THE’s methodology, indicator by indicator. Finally, Baty will reveal THE’s thinking on the future of the rankings, including the development of new performance metrics. Time will be allowed for a Q&A session.
