top universities in the world

None of the Indian universities figures among the world’s top 100 universities, with the U.S. and the U.K. dominating the scene, says a report published today.

Harvard University, U.S., has retained its top position in 2009, while Cambridge University, U.K., has moved up from third to second position. Yale University of the U.S. has slipped one position to third.

According to the QS/Times Higher Education rankings, the University College London (UCL) leapfrogged Oxford University as the latter slipped from fourth to joint fifth position along with Imperial College, London.

Overall, the U.K. still punches above its weight, second only to the US, the report said. It has four out of the top 10 slots and 18 in the top 100.

Tokyo is highest ranked Asian university

The rankings are based on an international survey of 9,000 academics who assessed the institutions’ research facility, teaching quality and ability to recruit staff and students abroad.

The top 10 Universities are:

  1. Harvard (U.S.),
  2. Cambridge (U.K.),
  3. Yale(U.S.), UCL, London (U.K.),
  4. Imperial College,
  5. London and Oxford (both U.K., joint 5),
  6. Chicago (U.S.),
  7. Princeton (U.S.),
  8. MIT, Massachusetts (U.S.)
  9. California Institute of Technology (U.S.).

I am a student, and I like to explore. after graduating as an engineer, I chose to learn about the non technical stuff about life because I felt curious about them. Unlike the engineering, these fields of social life were more complicated and difficult to have any consensus or even logic. yet, I saw life somehow always flourishing! My attempt is to understand these complex social issues in life and present them in simple terms, and this blog is an humble attempt in that direction. currently I am preparing for the Civil services i.e. Indian administrative service which involves study of all aspects related with India, its society and its governance.
