Hmmm, via Alex here are (supposedly) the World’s top 500 Unis and my, aren’t a lot of them in the US… must be the best place in the world to study, mustn’t it ;o>
Couple of obvious gripes are that the fact that this is based solely on ‘academic achievement’ (Alumni of an institution winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, Staff of an institution winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, Highly cited researchers in 21 broad subject categories, Articles published in Nature and Science & Articles in Science Citation Index-expanded and Social Science Citation Index) and yet this is highlighted, um, *possibly* in the graphic tucked away in the top left corner… otherwise this is “The top 100 World Universities” (no mention here, for example, of ‘based-on-what’!)
Second one is that I’d love to see a corresponding study on how happy teachers & students were with their institutions correlated to to this.
