The world’s largest invitation-only academic opinion survey, Times Higher Education’s global Academic Reputation Survey, is being launched in early November.

The Academic Reputation Survey 2024, available in 12 languages, will be distributed by THE and use benchmark data as a guide to ensure that the response coverage is as representative of world scholarship as possible. 

The annual questionnaire targets only experienced, published scholars, who offer their views on excellence in research and teaching within their disciplines and at institutions with which they are familiar. Invitations will be spread across a three-month period. 

The survey results will help to fuel THE’s series of rankings in 2024. 

Scholars are asked to use their discipline-specific knowledge to name up to 15 universities that they believe are the best in both research and teaching. The survey, which typically takes up to 15 minutes to complete, will close at the end of January 2024. 

The headline results of the survey will be shared with respondents. More detailed analysis will then be published in THE’s World Reputation Rankings 2024. The survey data from 2023 and 2024 will also be used alongside 15 objective indicators to help create the THE World University Rankings 2025, to be published in late 2024, and all WUR subsidiary rankings.

The survey also provides a uniquely rich picture of the changing global academic reputation of institutions to inform THE’s editorial analyses and data and analytics tools. 

The survey is strictly invitation-only; universities cannot make nominations or supply contact lists, and individuals cannot nominate themselves for participation.
