New ranking shows top UK institutions

The University of Oxford has been named the best institution in the world.

The English university is the first UK institution to top the Times Higher Education’s (THE) World University Rankings table.

Phil Baty, editor of the rankings, said: “It is fantastic news that the University of Oxford has topped the World University Rankings for the first time. It is a great result for the UK higher education sector and cements its position as one of the greatest university nations in the world.  

“However, the UK will have to watch out for Asia’s continuing ascent. Although the notion of Asia as the ‘next higher education superpower’ has become something of a cliché in recent years, the continent’s rise in the rankings is real and growing. 

He continued: “[In the UK, Brexit] is already causing uncertainty for the sector. As well as some top academics reporting they have been frozen out of collaborative research projects with EU colleagues, many are admitting that they might look to relocate to a university outside the country.

Here are the top 10 universities in the world:

University of Oxford      

California Institute of Technology            

Stanford University        

University of Cambridge              

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Harvard University
