Rankings which assess the quality and accessibility of higher education in countries across the world, have been published today by QS Quacquarelli Symonds. Fifty countries across six continents have been represented, with researchers looking at access, system strength and a country’s top performing institution to compile the tables. Here are the top 10.
With two universities in the top 50 institutions in the world, according to QS, Japan takes tenth place in the rankings. Kyoto University and the University of Tokyo take 38th and 39th place respectively. The capital city, Tokyo, was also ranked as the third best city in the world for students, with a low student to general population ratio.
