Oxford number one University in the world

Last week, the University of Oxford took top spot in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. It is the first time in the 12-year history of the rankings that a university from the United Kingdom has held this honour.

Sysdoc Founder and Chair Katherine Corich is an Associate Fellow of the Saïd Business School. Corich said, “It is no surprise that the University of Oxford has been recognised by first place in the recent Times Higher Education rankings. I have seen first-hand the dedication, drive and determination of all involved in providing a first class education for the students of Oxford. These young minds can then leave with the ideal attributes to lead and provide answers to the questions that the 21st century demands”.

The universities were all judged by their performance across four factors – teaching, research, citations and their international outlook. The University of Oxford displaced the California Institute of Technology from first place, with the University of Cambridge (Fourth) and Imperial College London (Eighth) the two other UK universities to make the top ten.
