Scoring Criteria

An Institution’s total score in a given year is calculated by combining its score in SDG 17 with its best three results on the remaining 16 SDGs.

The score from each SDG is scaled so that the highest score in each SDG in the overall calculation is 100 and the lowest score is 0. This is to adjust for minor differences in the scoring range in each SDG and to ensure that Institutions are treated equitably whichever SDGs they have provided data for. It is these scaled scores that we use to determine which SDGs a university has performed in most strongly; they may not be the SDGs in which the university is ranked highest or has scored highest based on unscaled scores.

SDG 17 accounts for 22 per cent of the total score, while the other SDGs each carry a weighting of 26 per cent. This means that different institutions are scored based on a different set of SDGs, depending on their focus. The score for the overall ranking is an average of the last two years’ total scores.
