Top international universities ranking 2015-Universities from Europe lead the pack at the world’s top international universities 2015. Ãcole Polytechnique FÃ©dÃ©rale de Lausanne (EPFL) of Switzerland tops the 2015 ranking, which has been brought out by major ranking platform Times Higher Education (THE).
Interestingly, universities from Switzerland occupy the first three positions among the top ten international universities. While Australia and Singapore are the only countries outside Europe to be featured in the top ten, US is represented by only two universities i.e., MIT and Rice University among the top 100 international universities ranking 2015. UK is the most represented country in the ranking.
The top international universities ranking 2015 has been compiled by THE on the basis of the “international outlook” indicator - part of the world ranking methodology, which takes into account 13 performance indicators to rank the top universities of the World. The “international outlook” indicator has three basic elements in it, namely, the proportion of international students, the proportion of international staff and the proportion of research published with an international co-author.
The ranking, however, takes into account the proportion of international students against the total number of students in the university. For example, of the 10,000 students studying at EPFL, 50 per cent are from Switzerland with the other half coming from overseas.
