Times Higher Education World University Ranking 2020 is a global university ranking that includes nearly 1,400 universities from 92 countries. It is the largest and most diverse university rating to date and is considered one of the most respected in the world, along with the Shanghai and QS ratings. The table of assessment criteria contains 13 indicators that measure the effectiveness of the institution in the field of teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international perspectives. An independent rating audit was provided by PricewaterhouseCoopers.


Among the areas highlighted by THE WUR 2020 rating are medicine, natural sciences, physical sciences, psychology, business and economics, education, law, social sciences, engineering and technology, computer sciences, art and humanities. For their assessment, the same verified performance indicators are used as for the general ranking of world universities, but the weight metrics are calibrated to match individual industries.
