National and international league tables are compiled using varying methodologies.
International rankings, including the QS, Times Higher and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Rankings run with the academic year. As such, for example 2017–18 is listed as 2017.
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 2018 Complete University Guide was released in 2017.
