American Universities in Europe ranking

As more and more people compete for places at the top universities, it is the responsibility of ranking organizations to ensure that what they produce is transparent and accurate. As the first global ranking to have been accredited by the International Ranking Expert Group, we are living up to that.”

US and UK universities continue to dominate

The top 10 universities in the QS World University Rankings 2013/2014 are, once again, all in either the US or UK.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) remains the top-ranked university, having reached number one for the first time last year. Next is Harvard, which topped the QS World University Rankings for the first six years in which they were published. After falling to third last year, Harvard has now moved back to second place at the expense of the UK’s University of Cambridge.

QS World University RankingsCambridge, at third, is immediately followed by three more UK universities. University College London (UCL) stays in 4th, while Imperial College London climbs one place to 5th, overtaking Oxford University, now 6th.

Completing the top 10 are Stanford, Yale, the University of Chicago, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Princeton – the last two share 10th place.

More broadly, US and UK universities continue to dominate the top tier of the rankings, occupying 17 of the top 20 places. However, there is greater diversity beyond this. US universities represent less than a third of the top 100 universities and exactly a quarter of the top 200. Like last year, the UK has 19 universities in the top 100 and 30 in the top 200.

Resurgence for Continental European universities

After several years in the doldrums, Continental European universities are enjoying a period of resurgence. This is led by Switzerland, which now has two universities in the top 20, following a leap of 10 places by Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (EPFL). ETH Zurich is the highest-placed university outside the English-speaking world, having moved up to 12th.

The Netherlands has two more universities than last year in the top 100, and all six have improved their positions this year. Although Germany still has only Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg in the top 50, eight of its 13 universities in the top 200 have gone up this year.

Europe's Failing Schools
September 28, 2004
By Martin Walker
Across Europe, where the academic year starts later than in the United States, over 6 million students are this week packing their bags to attend or settling back into some 3,300 universities.
Some, a small handful, will be lucky, attending the ancient and venerable universities on which the reputation of higher education on the old continent still rests. Most will be attending institutions that are second or even third-rate. And many of those who will graduate with decent degrees and a sound education will soon leave Europe for the greater opportunities of the United States

CNN promotes ignorance in the US

2002-01-17 12:35:07 by Ombudsman

Americans (the term used here to mean US citizens) are, by the masses, a dumb and ignorant lot, speaking in general, compared to other populations from around the world. Americans are also arrogant (ask any one who is not American). But this is partly the result of Americans not having any respectable news media. The closest contender for the title, CNN, falls short by miles. Here's an example why:
