For Citations, Tübingen was given 79.3 points (prev.: 74), 59.2 points for Industry Income (prev.: 54.7) and 58.2 points for International Outlook (prev.: 53).

The University’s improved result was partly due to increased third-party funding of approximately 56 percent over the past five years (excluding Medicine). It also reflects the wise investment of Excellence Initiative funding the University has received.

The Times Higher Education World University Ranking is one of the big three in the field of assessing universities’ quality. The others are QS and the Shanghai Ranking. The THE Ranking uses 13 separate performance indicators to examine a university’s strengths against all of its core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
