Top 100 world universities 2016/17 – QS World University Rankings

                 The University of Cambridge has dropped out of the top three global universities for the first time in over a decade, the annual QS World University Rankings have revealed.

According to the list, the elite institution is the highest ranked in the UK, but has fallen from third place to fourth – its lowest ranking since the league tables were launched in 2004.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has been named the world’s best for the fifth consecutive year.

In total, 38 of the UK’s 48 top 400 universities dropped down the rankings this year. Cambridge, Oxford, UCL and Imperial remained within the top 10, but the latter slipped from eighth to ninth this year.

Ben Sowter, head of research at QS, argued that a combination of uncertainty over immigration and long-term funding issues could have influenced the UK’s performance.

He added that “the ability to hire and retain the top young talent from around the world seems to be damaging the reputation of the UK’s higher education sector”.

However, in terms of cities, London continues to host more top 40 institutions than any other city in the world, with nearly half of its 16 featured universities rising in the rankings.
