times higher education, 2018-10-04, Measuring universities’ contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals, Times Higher Education is set to launch the world’s first university impact ranking.
The initiative – the first global attempt to document evidence of higher education impact – is designed to capture unique new insights on universities’ work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Universities contribute a huge amount to society, and this data can offer a new perspective on how they’re addressing some of the most pressing global issues.
This work has never been fully explored in the past, and has never been recognised in global rankings. The need and desire for clear, new metrics on impact is strong, and while this is a highly challenging area of data collection, it’s also an important and necessary step forward.
Version 1 is not going to be perfect nor will it capture all the impact that is occurring. It will also remain subject to ongoing consultative discussion as we expect it to develop over time. This is why your opinions and insights on our work are valuable. So we are listening and open to discussing suggestions, concerns and ideas., Times Higher Education (THE)
The THE World University Rankings provide the definitive list of the world’s best universities, with an emphasis on the research mission. It is the only global university league table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); industry income (knowledge transfer) and international outlook (staff, students and research). It uses 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons. The overall list is accompanied by 11 subject-specific rankings.
We also draw on the rich database behind the World University Rankings to publish a series of regional and thematic rankings, offering deeper insights into a wider range of universities against a wider range of missions. These include: Arab University Rankings, Asia University Rankings, Latin America University Rankings, World Reputation Rankings and Young University Rankings.
The THE Impact Rankings, founded in 2019, are the only global league tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We publish an overall ranking, as well as 17 tables showing universities’ progress towards delivering each of the SDGs.
Our teaching rankings were developed to offer a different assessment of excellence in higher education, and to enable us to rank institutions that are often not research-focused enough to be eligible for the World University Rankings. We launched our first teaching ranking in 2016. These rankings are geographically focused because the data associated with teaching, and the issues related to it, tend to be much more local than global in nature. We publish two teaching rankings: the Wall Street Journal/THE US College Rankings and the Japan University Rankings. These rankings put student engagement and student success at their heart.

TPG Capital acquired TSL Education from Charterhouse in a £400 million deal in July 2013 and rebranded TSL Education, of which Times Higher Education was a part, as TES Global. The acquisition by TPG marked the third change of ownership in less than a decade for Times Higher Education, which was previously owned by News International before being acquired by Exponent Private Equity in 2005.
In March 2019, private equity group Inflexion Pvt. Equity Partners LLP acquired Times Higher Education from TPG Capital, becoming THE’s fourth owners in 15 years. Following the acquisition by the private equity group, Times Higher Education was carved out as an independent entity from TES Global. The investment was made by Inflexion’s dedicated mid-market buyout funds.
The exclusive advisor for the acquisition by Inflexion was Houlihan Lokey, an investment company which has previously assisted several private equity groups acquire for-profit educational organisations. Post-acquisition, Houlihan Lokey noted that the existing Times Higher Education team will work to meet the demand for data and branding products, and look at cross-selling to existing clients.
From its first issue, on 15 October 1971, until 2008, The Times Higher Education Supplement (The Thes) was published weekly in newspaper format and was born out of its sister paper, the Times Educational Supplement (TES) and affiliated with The Times newspaper.
Its founding editor, Brian MacArthur, recruited a team of talented young reporters to chart the expanding higher education sector, including Peter Hennessy (now Lord Hennessy), David Henke, David Walker, Christopher Hitchens, and Peter Scott, who was appointed editor in 1976. Scott remained editor until 1992, leading a team of journalists that included Robin McKie, John O’Leary (who would later return as editor after a period at The Times), and Peter David. Other staff reporters in this period included Ngaio Crequer and Judith Judd. Brian Morton, Lynne Truss and Olga Wojtas have established careers as writers.
In the 1980s, The Thes pioneered comparisons of the reputations of university departments through peer review conducted by consulting academics in the field under scrutiny. Managed by O’Leary, this become the foundation for the league table of United Kingdom universities that was launched under his stewardship as Education Editor of The Times.
The Thes was a supporter of the then “binary divide” between the established universities and the polytechnics and the links between the latter and the local education authorities, which ended with the Further and Higher Education Act 1992.
The magazine features a fictional satirical column written by Laurie Taylor, the “Poppletonian”, which reflects on life at the fictional Poppleton University.
Under Scott’s editorship, it stood apart from other titles in Rupert Murdoch’s News International in endorsing the Labour Party at successive General Elections.
In 1992 Scott left for academe and was replaced by Auriol Stevens, who was editor until 2002. Under her editorship The Thes strongly supported the case for undergraduate students to contribute to their higher education through tuition fees.
The Thes was the first of Rupert Murdoch’s UK titles to put its text, archive and job ads on line, although the text was at that time behind a subscription wall. Stevens described the move as the “Murdoch empire’s canary in the coal mine”.
With its elder sister publication, the Times Educational Supplement, it was acquired by venture capital group Exponent in October 2005 for £205m.
On 10 January 2008, it was relaunched as a magazine, published by TES Global. The magazine is edited by John Gill. Phil Baty is the editor-at-large, and is responsible for international coverage. He is also the editor of the magazine’s World University Rankings.
In 2011, Times Higher Education was awarded the titles of “Weekly Business Magazine of the Year” and “Media Business Brand of the Year” by the Professional Publishers Association.
In 2019, it was widely rumoured that Elsevier, who already partners with THE in order to compile their university rankings, was planning to take over Times Higher Education completely.
In August 2020, Times Higher Education announced partnerships with recruitment agency SI-UK and accommodation provider Casita, signalling its entry into the overseas student recruitment and student housing markets.
On 11 September 2020, Netherlands-based Studyportals announced that it had inked an agreement with Times Higher Education, which will see the Times Higher Education website’s student visitors directed to the Studyportals student recruitment platform whenever students look into courses run by universities that THE ranks in its World University Rankings.
