UK universities have maintained their global dominance as Oxford University topped the world rankings for the fourth year running. The Evening Standard reports.
However, the nation is still facing intense competition from overseas institutions, the latest Times Higher Education (THE) world university rankings show.
Overall, the UK has 28 institutions in the top 200, down from 29 last year. But of these, almost two-thirds (18 universities) have fallen by at least one place.
Phil Baty, THE chief knowledge officer, said: “British universities have long been able to attract the most talented academics and students from across the world, but there are signs that this is becoming more difficult ahead of Brexit.
“If the UK starts to withdraw from the international stage, its position in the upper echelons of the rankings will suffer.”
