University of Oxford top for Computer Science in the World for sixth year running


The University of Oxford has topped the Times Higher Education world ranking for Computer Science for the sixth consecutive year, in their newly released subject tables. 

The computer science subject table uses the same trusted and rigorous performance indicators as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024, but the methodology has been recalibrated to suit the discipline.  

This year’s table includes 1,027 universities, up from 974 last year.  

More than 120 of the featured universities are American, and 61 institutions are based in the UK. Canada and Australia are also well represented with 28 and 30 institutions respectively.    

‘We are delighted to have the consistent quality of our research and teaching recognised in this way. This is of course a group effort, from our excellent staff and our truly outstanding cohort of students who contribute so much to the success of the department.’ Department of Computer Science Head of Department Leslie Ann Goldberg
