Oxford tops world University rankings

The University of Oxford has knocked the California Institute of Technology, which had been ranked as the highest performing University in the world for the previous five years, into second place.

This is the first time a British University has led the Times Higher Education Supplement list of world university rankings.

The Times Higher tables rank universities worldwide on measures including teaching, research and international outlook - for example, numbers of overseas students and staff.

No fewer than three British universities - Oxford (1st), Cambridge (4th), and Imperial College London (8th) - are in the top ten. One other place in the top ten was taken by a Swiss University, and the remaining institutions in the table were from the USA.
