ODTÜ among top universities
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsAnkara’s Middle East Technical University (ODTÜ) is the 96th best university of 100 top universities worldwide, according to a new ranking released by the London-based Times Higher Education magazine, the BBC has reported.
Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are at the top the list of world universities enjoying the best reputation, the survey said.
Cambridge and Oxford made the top 10, but other U.K. universities have slipped, while Asian institutions have risen in the rankings, said Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education rankings. “This is uncomfortable news for the U.K.”
The rankings are based on the perceptions of 17,000 academics. The list is an attempt to quantify the elusive but important quality of “reputation” in higher education, with findings based on the opinions of academics around the world.
Reflecting the rise of Asian countries as the new education superpowers, countries such as China, Japan, Singapore and South Korea have an increasing presence on the list.
Times Higher Education’s top 10 universities are:
Harvard University, US
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US
Cambridge University, UK
Stanford University, US
University of California, Berkeley, US
Oxford University, UK
Princeton University, US
University of Tokyo, Japan
University of California, Los Angeles, US
Yale University, US
