UT maintains a high position in the world university rankings

The Times Higher Education (THE), arguably the world’s most influential compiler of university rankings, published the most recent ranking of the world’s best universities. In the 2018 rankings the University of Tartu continues to hold a place in the 301–350 band.

THE rankings, published since 2004, is considered the world’s most reputable and objective university ranking which compares world research universities across all core missions. The ranking considers 13 performance indicators which are grouped into five areas: the learning environment (30% of the final result), research (30%), research influence (30%), industry income (2.5%) and international outlook (7.5%).

For this year’s ranking, THE ranked 1000 best universities in the world. This year’s list is led for the first time by two UK universities – the University of Oxford on the number one spot and the University of Cambridge on the second place. 

Of Estonian universities, also the Tallinn University of Technology made it to the table, holding on to the 601–800 band, similarly to last year.
