Oxford drops to fifth in University world rankings

The Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, made it to the top 100 universities in the Times Education World Reputation Rankings 2018, which were released on Wednesday.

There are 21 countries represented in what seems to actually be a Top 105, as there are 25 universities in the 81-100 group.

The US continues to dominate the rankings, counting eight institutions in the top 10 and 44 across the top 100.

Judging from the rankings, THE said, Asia's leading universities still lack the global standing that is enjoyed by many of their peers in the United Kingdom and the U.S. The table's Top 20 comprises 13 American universities, four from the United Kingdom, two from China and one from Japan.

"This should give pause for serious thought as the country seeks to champion its status as "global Britain" in a post-Brexit world", Phil Baty, editorial director of the rankings said.

The rating lists The Hebrew University in the 91-100 band, together withBoston University, University of Copenhagen, France's Ecole Polytechnique, the University of Helsinki and the India Institute of Science, among others.

The THE list ranks universities based on their brand prestige in the global academic community. In 2017, Tsinghua University was ranked 48th, its first ever placing in the top 50. For European universities, the majority of their votes came from outside the region.

"There is no cause for alarm - continued investment built upon decades of spending, alongside increased internationalization in Chinese higher education will no doubt ensure China's universities continue to strengthen".

According to THE, its World Reputation Rankings are created using the world's largest invitation-only academic opinion survey - a unique piece of research.

Administered by Elsevier, the survey “targets experienced, published scholars, who offer their views on excellence in research and teaching within their disciplines and at institutions with which they are familiar”.
