The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).It assesses university commitment to sustainability across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching. The rankings provide the definitive list of the world’s best universities, with an emphasis on the research mission.


THE Impact Rankings which are conducted to demonstrate a university’s commitment to delivering SDGs make it compulsory for universities to have SDG 17, Partnership for the Goals, for inclusion in the overall table.


How is the ranking created?

A university’s final score in the overall table is calculated by combining its score in SDG 17 with its top three scores out of the remaining 16 SDGs. SDG 17 accounts for 22 per cent of the overall score, while the other SDGs each carry a weight of 26 per cent. This means that different universities are scored based on a different set of SDGs, depending on their focus.


The score from each SDG is scaled so that the highest score in each SDG in the overall calculation is 100 and the lowest score is 0. This is to adjust for minor differences in the scoring range in each SDG and to ensure that universities are treated equitably, whichever SDGs they have provided data for.
