TES World Reputation Rankings

The global reputation of an institution can be a powerful tool for graduates. The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings invites 10,000 senior academics from around the world to rate institutions. Though completely subjective, their opinions give interesting insight into the excellence of research and teaching in various fields. The list was published on March 11 and includes institutions from every corner of the globe.

Of the top 100, 43 are from the US, with the UK coming in next with 12. Six are in Germany, and Australia, France, and the Netherlands each have five. Harvard takes the top spot this year, with Oxford and Cambridge in second and third. Other UK institutions in the top 50 include Imperial College London, University College London, London School of Economics, University of Edinburgh, Kings College London, and the University of Manchester.

These rankings are important to consider as you begin to search for your ideal institution. World rankings tables are a great place to start, as you can find the institutions in your field that are most respected internationally and begin to narrow your search.
