The University of Cambridge was voted the best university for research quality, as selected by over 15,000 academics around the world. Although Harvard was the most popular among the 5,007 employers polled globally, Cambridge edged ahead overall.

QS World University Rankings® measure university research quality, graduate employability, teaching commitment and international commitment. QS rankings use a combination of global surveys and audited data including citation counts from Scopus, the world’s largest database of academic publishing.

Ben Sowter, head of research at QS says: “Unlike other rankings systems which rely heavily on statistical indicators of university research,  QS  also takes into account the most up-to-date views of employers and academics, reflecting the broader interests of students and parents.”  

Zoya Zaitseva, regional marketing director at QS says: “Many governments in Europe are encouraging universities to be more actively involved with international rankings. This doesn’t seem to be the case in Greece yet as local education has more important issues to solve first, but there are already some positive changes in the attitudes of the university heads which are reflected in some of the Greek universities moving up.”

The Top 200 results and methodology is available on www.topuniversities.com. The full Top 500 will be published on 15th September 00.01 GMT +01:00
