The 2024 ranking considered 673 universities that met the organisation’s eligibility criteria. According to Times Higher Education:

Universities can be excluded from the World University Rankings (and therefore from the Young University Rankings) if they do not teach undergraduates, or if their research output amounted to fewer than 1,000 relevant publications between 2018 and 2022 (with a minimum of 150 a year). Universities can also be excluded if 80 per cent or more of their research output is exclusively in one of our 11 subject areas.

Same methodology as the World University Rankings

According to Times Higher Education, the Young University Rankings “applies the same methodology as the World University Rankings with recalibrated weightings.”

These rankings are based on 18 performance indicators grouped into five key areas: teaching, research environment, research quality, international outlook, and industry engagement.
