According to Times Higher Education: "The prestigious table applies the same rigorous 13 performance indicators as the overall THE World University Rankings - with young universities measured across their teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income."
Roskilde University has been ranked in the overall Times Higher Education World University Rankings since 2016 and in 2017, RUC advanced to the interval between 401-500 out of 1,100 universities.
