The World's 10 Best Universities

By Arden Dier, Newser Staff

(Newser) – The world has a new top university. Oxford has pushed the California Institute of Technology—which held the top spot for the past five years—to second place in the 2016 World University Rankings, based on research impact, reputation, and global scholarship. This marks the first time in the list's 13-year history that a school outside the US has come out on top, reports the Wall Street Journal. Here's the top 10:


1. University of Oxford
2. California Institute of Technology
3. Stanford University
4. University of Cambridge
5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
6. Harvard University
7. Princeton University
8. Imperial College London
9. Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich
10. Tie: University of California, Berkeley and University of Chicago

The University of Chicago is tied with UCal at 10th place. Even with all the gun fights, deaths, racial discord in the City of Chicago, the University of Chicago ( on the SouthSide of Chicago)has maintained it's status as a World class University.

That's truly remakable, in my opinion.

It is "remakable" in your opinion.

Top 10 universities for 'research', reputation of veracity, and global scholarships?

So:

1. University of Oxford
2. California Institute of Technology
3. Stanford University
4. University of Cambridge
5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
6. Harvard University
7. Princeton University
8. Imperial College London
9. Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich
10. Tie: University of California, Berkeley and University of Chicago


Oxford University ranked number 1 in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for the third year running, and at the heart of this success is our ground-breaking research and innovation.

University of Oxford Initiates Research on Endocrinology of Human Lactation


is an example.

California Institute of Technology
Caltech:
RESEARCH
Top-caliber scientists and engineers lead breakthrough research that shifts paradigms, launches new fields, creates technologies, and benefits society.

So if 'research' is your interest, these would be the top 10.

@Miller,
I wonder what the rankings would be if the list were broken down by fields of interest and type of diplomas. In other words, specific categories.

For example:
1. What are the top 10 universities for engineering degrees?
2. What are the top 10 universities for Law degrees?
3. What are the top 10 universities for degrees in medicine?
4. What are the top 10 universities in business degrees?
5. What are the top 10 universities in Science and technology?

There are many other categories I could list. This is only a tiny sample of diplomas and categories.

I guess M.I.T might be number 1 in Science and technology. I don't know.
I guess Harvard might be number 1 in Law. I don't know.
I guess UCLA School of Medicine might be ranked very high in the medical fields. I don't know.
