THE - Times World Rankings - North America

Higher education serves as the foundation of most careers. As such, it’s critical for students to gain a thorough understanding of what’s on offer and choose the study path that best suits their individual needs and ambitions. Since its establishment in 2010, the Times Higher Education rankings have emerged as an invaluable resource for students on the search for an opinion that matters.

According to Times Higher Education the methodology of selecting final candidates is "robust, transparent and sophisticated." The entire process takes around 10 months and involves “detailed consultation with leading experts in global higher education."
