UK dominates list of global universities over 400 years old

11 February 2016

 

To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Times Higher Education has ranked the 25 best universities over 400 years old, with three UK universities sitting at the top of the table.

11 different countries feature in the list, but it is the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and University of Edinburgh who occupy the top three positions. The UK is the most represented nation in the list alongside Germany, with six universities featuring overall.

The ranking was compiled using the data collected for the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16, but filtered to only include those institutions that are more than 400 years old. The 25 institutions with the highest scores were included in the table.

  1. University of Oxford (Founded: 1096)
  2. University of Cambridge (Founded: 1209)
  3. University of Edinburgh (Founded: 1583)
  4. LMU Munich (Founded: 1472)
  5. KU Leuven (Founded: 1425)

If you are interested in studying at a world class university in the UK and benefitting from hundreds of years of history, arrange a free consultation.

I had a very great experience right from the start to finish; All the staff were really great and very helpful. I recommend SI-UK for all students who are planning to study in the UK.
