The United Kingdom is home to five of the world’s top twenty universities according to the QS World University Rankings® international league table. CEPS CDT partner institutions, UCL and University of Cambridge, consistently rank in the top 10.

UCL has climbed from tenth to eight place this year and University of Cambridge has climbed from seventh to third.

QS is the world’s most-consulted international rankings, now including 1,300 universities. The company uses six indicators to compile the rankings: academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, faculty-to-student ratio, international faculty ratio and international student ratio.

Ben Sowter, Director of Research at QS, said the results highlighted the ‘enduring value of international collaboration’, adding: “It is no accident that the most internationally collaborative universities are also those enjoying success in our rankings.”
