    Top 100 world universities 2015/16 – QS rankings

    The QS annual world university rankings were published earlier this week,, with MIT maintaining its position as the top-ranked university worldwide.

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has retained its position as the top ranked university in the world, according to annual league tables.

    The QS World Universities 2015/16 rankings, published this week, also saw Harvard rise from fourth place last year to take second spot this year, overtaking the University of Cambridge.

    Imperial College London, which was placed joint second last year, slipped to eighth, while the University of Oxford and UCL also fell in the rankings.

    However, despite these slips, the UK has maintained its reputation for world class higher education. London, in particular, performed strongly, as the only city in the world with four universities in the top 50, more than Boston and New York (3) Paris, Sydney, Hong Kong and Beijing (2).

    Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, praised institutions in the Capital, saying the city was the “education capital of the world.”

    “The city’s education sector is going from strength to strength,” he said. “Attracting the world’s top talent and producing the next generation of great thinkers and leaders.”
