The World Universities Debating Council maintains the official ranking of institutions’ performances at the World Championship. The rankings are calculated using each institution’s past five performances at the WUDC. These rankings provide a rough guide to cumulative performance at previous WUDCs, but should by no means be taken as an official ranking of the competitive success of a given institution.
As per the WUDC Constitution, institutional totals comprise the following:
- All points won by teams representing the institution in preliminary rounds
- Three points per team advancing in Open elimination rounds per round
- Six additional points to the institution that wins the Open Grand Final
