This week marks an important point in the calendar for the leading global universities with the publication of the latest THE/QS World University Rankings. In only four years, the rankings have established themselves as an accepted benchmark of quality. Thursday’s publication in Times Higher Education and subsequently on this website will be scrutinised by students, employers and academics on every continent.
Harvard keeps the top spot, followed by Yale, Cambridge and Oxford.
The top Dutch university that appears in the top 200 is the University of Amsterdam, followed by Leiden University and the University of Utrecht.
