The results were calculated by taking into account a range of factors: research, teaching, research influence, industry income and international outlook.

A spokesman for Times Higher Education told Mail Online: “In a year dominated by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the rankings reflect the vital role of universities in understanding and managing the crisis as a number of institutions see significant boosts in their citation scores.”
