Hebrew University ranked among top 100 most powerful global university brands

Hebrew University ranked among top 100 most powerful global university brands

UCLA joins the top 10 for the first time since 2014.

The ranking is compiled from a globally representative survey of 10,000 senior academics on the most renowned institutions.

The UK claims nine places, down from 10 previous year.

The top five ranked universities are Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford, Cambridge, and Oxford.

University College London dropped to 18th spot, down from 16 past year, while the Imperial College London dropped down to 20 from 18 in 2017.

The Asia-Pacific sees 23 institutions placed across the Top 100, with China and Japan most strongly represented. Canada saw some gains, with its three institutions slightly up: the University of Toronto at number 22 (up from 24), the University of British Columbia at 38 (from 40) and McGill University at 41 (from 42).

What Kim and Moon spoke about at surprise summit
He urged Washington and Pyongyang to resolve their differences through " more direct and closer dialogue between their leaders". As you know, there are meetings going on as we speak in a certain location which I won't name, but you'd like the location.


IISc Bangalore is the only Indian institution to make it to the top 100.

'While we have seen evidence that some worldwide students are seeing the USA as a less attractive option, with declining applications, this data from the global academic community suggests the top U.S. universities remain the most highly regarded in the world by a mile'.

University College London fell two places to 18th and Imperial College also fell by two, to 20th. The table's Top 20 comprises 13 American universities, four from the United Kingdom, two from China and one from Japan.

"But their status is in no way guaranteed - all United Kingdom universities have either fallen down the global pecking order this year or stayed static".

Commenting on the higher rankings by NUS and NTU, Mr Phil Baty, the editorial director for global rankings at Times Higher Education, said: "The growing strength of both institutions seems to be increasingly matched by rising prestige among the global scholarly community".

In a new revelation, four of the most respected London universities have slipped down a global league table following rows over executive pay, sub-par teaching and "safe space" censorship.
