Only 12 UK Universities Are Among The 100 Best In The World, Is Yours One of Them?

We all like to think the university we go to is the best, or at least one of the best.

But according to Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings 2018, only twelve UK universities are among the 100 best in the world.

There’s a whopping 1,000 universities listed in the global rankings, with two UK universities taking the top two spots for the first time ever.

The University of Oxford is in first place, with the University of Cambridge coming in second, climbing from fourth place last year.

Despite having a stronghold over the very top of the list, only 10 other UK universities made it into the top 100 of the rankings, which score universities based on factors including teaching quality, industry income and international outlook.

Several London universities ranked highly, with Bristol, Manchester and Warwick also making an appearance.

The University of Sheffield just missed out on a spot in the top 100, coming in at 104th place.
