The Times Higher Education Emerging Economies University Rankings 2018 includes only institutions in countries classified by the FTSE as “advanced emerging”, “secondary emerging” or “frontier”.
its fifth year, the 2018 ranking parts with the ‘BRICS’ acronym in the title to recognise the strength and potential of a diverse range of emerging economies.
The rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings to judge institutions on their teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. But they are recalibrated to reflect the development priorities of universities in emerging economies.
The performance indicators are grouped into five areas:
1. Teaching (the learning environment)
2. Research (volume, income and reputation)
3. Citations (research influence)
4. International outlook (staff, students and research)
5. Industry income (knowledge transfer)
Note: The ranking of institutions, after 200, have been given in range like 201-250 and 251-300.
The rank has been taken as 201, 202, 203……..250 as the same order as they appear in the source.
The 2018 Times Higher Education World University Rankings table for computer science employs the same rigorous and balanced range of 13 performance indicators used in the overall World University Rankings, but the methodology has been re calibrated to suit the individual fields.
This year’s ranking has expanded to include 300 institutions, up from 100 last year, while the threshold for the proportion of staff working in the relevant disciplines has decreased.

Several newcomers make the list this year. In some cases this is due to the change in the staff threshold. Stanford University, for example, enters at first place, while the University of Cambridge is now in fifth.
Two Swiss institutions – ETH Zurich and EPFL – still make the top 10 this year but both have dropped places, largely as a result of drops in their scores for teaching environment.
Meanwhile, China’s leading institutions – Peking and Tsinghua – have both risen to take 20th (up from 21st) and 25th (up from 27th) place respectively. The National University of Singapore is still top in Asia, despite falling three places to 13th.
The Times Higher Education World University Ranking is the global performance index that judges research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators are used to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry, and governments.
Universities are excluded from the World University Rankings if they do not teach undergraduates or if their research output amounted to fewer than 1,000 articles between 2011 and 2015 (and a minimum of 150 a year). Universities can also be excluded if 80 percent or more of their activity is exclusively in one of our eight subject areas.
The performance indicators are grouped into five areas with the following weights:
Teaching (the learning environment): 30%
• Reputation survey: 15%
• Staff-to-student ratio: 4.5%
• Doctorate-to-bachelor’s ratio: 2.25%
• Doctorates-awarded- to-academic-staff ratio: 6%
• Institutional income: 2.25%
Research (volume, income and reputation): 30%
• Reputation survey: 18%
• Research income: 6%
• Research productivity: 6%
Citations (research influence): 30%
International outlook (staff, students, research): 7.5%
• International-to-domestic-student ratio: 2.5%
• International-to-domestic-staff ratio: 2.5%
• International collaboration: 2.5%
Industry income (knowledge transfer): 2.5%
The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings employ the world's largest invitation-only academic opinion survey to provide the definitive list of the top 100 most powerful global university brands. A spin-off of the annual World University Rankings, the reputation league table is based on nothing more than subjective judgement - but it is the considered expert judgement of senior, published academics - the people best placed to know the most about excellence in our universities.
