Nine UK universities in new global reputation rankings

An analysis published by Times Higher Education (THE) ranks Hebrew University of Jerusalem 91st to 100th among the top 100 most powerful global university brands.

Oxford and Cambridge were the only non-US universities to make the top ten.

The top-rated institution in the list is Harvard University, followed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University.

Princeton, Yale and the University of California, Berkeley, were also in the top ten along with UCLA and the University of Chicago who were tied for ninth place.

Traditionally Chinese universities scored less well in worldwide ranking tables compared to U.S. and European incumbents in levels of teaching and research.

There are two universities each from Singapore, Russia and Sweden, and one each from Belgium, Taiwan, Denmark, Israel, Finland and India – the Indian Institute of Science is in the 91-100 group.

12 of the 14 Big Ten Conference universities were on the list, including No. 15 Michigan, No. 32 Illinois, No. 33 Wisconsin, No. 37 Northwestern, No. 50 Penn State, Minnesota and Purdue in the 51-60 group, Michigan State and Ohio State in the 61-70 group, Maryland in the 71-80 group, in in the 81-90 group and Rutgers in the 91-100 group.

While continued investment and increased internationalisation would ensure Chinas universities continued to strengthen, Baty argued, the survey showed how hard it was to break into the traditional global elite.

However, Baty said the stabilization of Chinese universities' rankings is no cause for alarm. This is the first time India has snagged a spot on the list since 2011, Times Higher Education said.

Indian Institute of Science is the only Indian University to have made it to the prestigious list. This marks the first time since 2014 that an Israeli university has been included in this list, the university said in a statement. The 2018 rankings are based on a more than 10,000-strong survey carried out between January 2018 and March 2018.
