I’m not saying we should start gang warfare between different campuses (who am I kidding – we totally should. It’d be fun) but there is at an element of competition between the schools competing for the top spot.

Keep in mind (although does this really need to be said?) that it can certainly be dependent on what you actually want to study. These rankings should be a guideline at best.

The interesting thing is this time is that it wasn’t all Ivy Leagues topping the rankings for a change.

“When we first started publishing Best Global Universities, the rankings evaluated 500 schools in 11 countries. Since then, we’ve added 750 schools and have expanded to 75 nations,” says Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News. “One thing has remained the same — schools that prioritize quality academic research remain at the top of the rankings.”
