Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THE)

Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THE) is one of the world's most highly regarded university ranking systems. It lists the top 1 900 universities in the world. The areas assessed in the THE rankings are teaching, research environment, research quality, industry, and international outlook. The ranking is based on 18 indicators.

QS World University Rankings 

LUT took part in the QS World University Rankings for the first time in 2016. We were ranked straight away among the top 400 universities – our position was 356th.

In the most recent QS rankings published in June 2024, LUT's position was 336th among a total of 1,503 universities listed. LUT performed particularly well in the citations per faculty member indicator. 

QS is, along with THE and the so-called Shanghai list (Academic Ranking of World Universities, ARWU), one of the leading university rankings in the world.

QS ranks universities based on eight indicators. The areas assessed include academic reputation, employer reputation, international citations per faculty member, the student-to-faculty ratio, the number of international students, sustainability, the international research network, and employment outcomes.
