Times Higher Education: Empowering Higher Education Worldwide

Chanya Chinsukserm
AUN Programme Officer;

Times Higher Education (THE) is a renowned global platform when it comes to higher education news, insights, and rankings. It serves as a valuable resource for students, educators, and institutions alike, offering a wealth of information and analysis. Its website, located at www.timeshighereducation.com, provides a comprehensive repository of news articles, opinion pieces, and in-depth features on various educational topics. Not only can students find guidance on choosing the right university or course, but educators can also access valuable research and pedagogical resources.

One of the most essential aspects of THE is its world university rankings, which serve as a benchmark for academic institutions around the globe. By evaluating universities based on a range of criteria, including research output, teaching quality, and international outlook, THE offers valuable insights into the strengths and weaknesses of each institution. These rankings can be accessed at www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings

In addition to the world university rankings, THE has also developed the Impact Rankings. This development aims to evaluate universities' contributions to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By assessing institutions' efforts in areas such as climate action, gender equality, and quality education, THE helps promote a more sustainable and socially responsible higher education sector. The Impact Rankings can be explored at www.timeshighereducation.com/impactrankings.
