World University Rankings 2018: results announced

The UK is home to the top two institutions in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for the first time in the 14-year history of the table. Oxford is holding on to the number one spot for the second year in a row, while Cambridge has jumped from fourth to second place.

It swaps places with former Dutch leader Delft University of Technology (63rd). Another key feature : although Australia and other countries in Europe has maintained a relatively steady performance, they face competition from rapidly rising institutions in Asia. Peking University has risen two places to joint 27th, which puts it on a par with New York University and the University of Edinburgh and ahead of the Karolinska Institute. Tsinghua University has climbed five places to 30th, overtaking the University of Melbourne, Georgia Institute of Technology, LMU Munich and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
