Oxford University still tops list of best educational establishments in the world

Oxford has retained the top spot in a global league table of universities, but many other British institutions are slipping down the rankings.

Cambridge has fallen from second to third place and Imperial College London from ninth to tenth amid ‘fierce competition’ from Asia, the US and the rest of Europe.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings show that 18 of the 28 British universities in the top 200 have dropped by at least one place since last year.

University College London is now in 15th position, down from 14th; the London School of Economics and Political Science is at joint 27th, down from 26th; and the University of Edinburgh is at 30, also slipping a place.
