UC Davis jumped from 54th to 38th among the world’s best universities in an annual ranking by the British magazine Times Higher Education released Thursday.

UCD tied with Australian National University to continue its move up the rankings. As recently as 2005, the publication ranked the Davis campus 206th.

This year, the California Institute of Technology took the top spot from Harvard University, which tied for second with Stanford University.

In all, eight UC campuses made the new top 400: 10, UC Berkeley; 13, UCLA; 33, UC San Diego; 35, UC Santa Barbara; 86, UC Irvine; 110, UC Santa Cruz; and 143, UC Riverside.

The University of Southern California gave the state 11 ranked schools, coming in 55th.

According to its website, Times Higher Education surveys 50 leading education figures from 15 countries to compile its list. They rank universities based on teaching (30 percent); research volume, income and reputation (30 percent); citations (30 percent); industry income (2.5 percent); and “international outlook” (7.5 percent).

UCD received an overall score of 71.2 out of 100. It improved in teaching, from 57.3 to 68; citations, from 68.8 to 83.4; and industry income, from 48 to 52.5.

Campus scores dipped in international outlook, from 60.5 to 51.4, and research, from 70.7 to 68.7.

The Times ranking comes on the heels of UCD’s best-ever 38th place among national universities in the annual U.S. News and World Report magazine rankings.
