Times Higher Education (THE) has published a ranking of the world’s most international universities. The data is derived from the three components of the intentional orientation cluster of the THE World University Rankings, International Faculty, International Students, and International Research Collaboration, plus a measure of international reputation derived from the academic teaching and research surveys in the rankings. British, Australian, Canadian, Swiss, and Hong Kong universities are prominent in the top one hundred of these rankings. Russia, China and the United States perform less well on this criterion.
The top ten international universities are:
1. City University of Hong Kong
