Note on academic league tables

International rankings, including the QS, Times Higher and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Rankings run with the academic year. As such 2011–12 is listed as 2011. 

The rest of the rankings are categorised by the year given to them by the respective publications, although they are released a year before this. So, for example, the 2013 Complete University Guide was released in 2012.
