Congratulations to the Blue Powered Higher Education Institutions on THE World University Rankings 2021

The prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2021 was released on September 2 and included over 1,500 universities from 93 countries. “The table is based on 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across four areas: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook,” stated Times Higher Education in the official release. Leveraged worldwide by students, teachers, governments, and industry experts, this year’s league table offers valuable “insight into the shifting balance of power in global higher education.”
