British unis are slipping in the top 100 chartBy Sj.Cliff
Oxbridge, the two top unis in the UK have been pushed further down the Times Higher Education World Reputations Rankings by their American counterparts.
America is domination the top 100 list with Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford taking first second and third respectively. This has left good old Oxford and Cambridge with just fourth and fifth.
There are only 10 British unis featured – shocking compared to the amount of American institutions featured hitting nearly 50%.
The list is created by 10,536 senior academics from over 100 countries and they nominate places in their field of excellence.
Editor of Times Higher Education Rankings, Phil Baty,commented "The UK has lost three big-name universities from the list of the world's 100 most prestigious institutions since the rankings were first published in 2011. In 2012, the University of Sheffield exited the rankings, in 2013 the University of Leeds followed suit, and this year the University of Bristol misses out.”
He added: "Given how important global reputation is in attracting top international talent, collaborations and investment, this is cause for concern. The UK has some of the world's biggest university brands: we must protect them."
