UK home to 10 of the world’s most prestigious universities

British Universities are rising up the ranks for reputation in spite of Brexit, latest global league tables reveal, with ten of the UK’s institutions making the top 100 in the world.

Oxford University has caught up with Cambridge for the first time this year, with both institutions sharing fourth place – the UK’s highest entry – in the Times Higher Education rankings for 2017.

The UK claims 10 spots in the top 100 list, the same as last year, with several institutions making gains this year.

The Telegraph takes the line that "Oxford University’s reputation has caught up with Cambridge for the first time, after a positive image was created by appointing its first female Vice Chancellor."
