THE Rankings: A New Historical Leap for UK Universities

Historically, no European institutions occupied the first two top spots in THE rankings, however, the University of Cambridge leapt right behind the University of Oxford this year.

In the meantime, universities in Asia are outranking other European institutions in the list. For five consecutive years, Caltech used to top the league table before the University of Oxford. Although the US took 7 places in the top 10 ranks, Asian institutions are competing with European ones in the league table.

Asian institutions' numbers in the top 30 have remarkably increased, while Europe, that used to have 10 institutions, now has only 7.

It is noteworthy to mention that THE observer asserts that the UK universities stance is still strong this year, in spite of the future posed threats. Some are worried about the pos-Brexit situation that the UK will have to prosper through to establish itself anew.
