In addition to the list below which is a ranking of the best universities in the world in terms of the perfomance breakdown (i.e. teaching, international outlook, research, and citations); another list of the most international universities in the world in terms of proportion of international staff, proportion of international students and proportion of research papers published with at least one co-author from another country has also been ranked by Times Higher Education.
