International Rankings

University rankings are just one method of assessing performance and making institutional comparisons. Different rankings use different measures, so each result must be taken in its own methodological context.

Notes:

  • Ordered by the sum of ranks (2021).
  • Last updated November 24, 2022.
  • Graduate only schools are excluded from most rankings and this table.
  • For comparability across rankings the “year” used in these tables refers to the year the ranking was published, not the year that the ranking publisher has assigned. For example the “QS World University Ranking 2023” was published in June 2022 and is therefore listed as “2022”.
