This is perhaps unsurprising given the major political changes of the last year. The 2018 table lists the world’s top 959 universities and is based on the opinions of over 75,000 academics, 40,000 employers, as well as 12.3m research papers and 75.1m citations.
The most apparent trend this year is the decline of the UK’s institutions. Of the 76 ranked, 51 have fallen down the rankings and only one UK institution makes the top five – the University of Cambridge. Of the 16 ranked Russell Group institutions, 11 have dropped.
