The University of Oxford has retained its lead from last year, obtaining an overall score of 94.3 this time around. The University of Cambridge follows closely with a score of 93.2. The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) which had led the rankings from 2013 – 2016, has slipped to the third place this year.
The European Union has a combined 32 universities in the top 100, with ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich) leading the way in the 10th position. The United States of America holds the distinction of having the most Universities in the top 100 with a total of 41. South Korea, Japan, Singapore and China have two universities each in the list, while Hong Kong has three and Canada four.
Times Higher Education has ranked 1000 universities from all over the world on 13 performance indicators. Teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income were the main groups of indicators which were further sub-divided to form 13 specific ones. Those universities which do not teach undergraduate courses or those which have produced less than 1000 research papers between 2012 and 2016 have been excluded from the rankings.
THE rankings have also been independently audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
