Top 10 Universities

9 November 2007

The Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) annual survey for 2007 had just been published, revealing the ranking of top third level institutions from all over the world. Unsurprisingly, the top 10 positions are hogged by universities in US and UK.

Top 10 Universities:
1. Harvard University (US)
2. Oxford University (UK)
2. Cambridge University (UK)
2. Yale University (US)
5. Imperial College London (UK)
6. Princeton University (US)
7. California Institute of Technology (US)
7. University of Chicago (US)
9. University College London (UK)
10. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (US)

Frankly though, I don’t know if such a ranking system is useful at all, of which such opinion had been voiced prior. The THES world university rankings lists the world’s top 200 universities measured on research quality, graduate employability, international outlook and teaching quality. Based on opinion of various researchers in the world, but plagued by low response rate, a bias could have easily skews the result of the ranks.

    Ahhh…the ivory league. I suspect each is famous for certain courses. so really depends on your field of study before choosing a university.

    Not to mention the exorbitant fees.

    Well, Ivy League certainly holds their ground, and not just the fees matter, whom you know is also a major plus. Tight alumni, I have been told.

    Hank, you can get it from THES website but you will need to sign up to it – they do offer free 14 days trial.
