UCLA ranks as second-best public university nationwide, ninth in world

UCLA ranked ninth best university worldwide in the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings an increase from 13th last year

The annual list, compiled from a globally representative survey of more than 10,000 senior academics, highlights the Top 100 most powerful global university brands.

NUS climbed three places to the 24th position, closing the gap on the top Chinese institutions, whose Tsinghua University retained its 14th spot.

Japan has five institutions across the top 100 (down from six), and four of these have declined.

The rating lists The Hebrew University in the 91-100 band, together withBoston University, University of Copenhagen, France's Ecole Polytechnique, the University of Helsinki and the India Institute of Science, among others.

'While we have seen evidence that some worldwide students are seeing the USA as a less attractive option, with declining applications, this data from the global academic community suggests the top U.S. universities remain the most highly regarded in the world by a mile'. The University of Tokyo is also included in top 20. "This should produce a virtuous circle, where excellence drives improved reputation and improved reputation supports excellence - helping to attract more global talent, more prestigious worldwide partnerships and more inward investment".

"But their status is in no way guaranteed - all United Kingdom universities have either fallen down the global pecking order this year or stayed static".




The UK was one of only two countries with institutions in the top 10, the other was the United States, which took the other eight places.

"This should give pause for serious thought, as the country seeks to champion its status as "global Britain" in a post-Brexit world".

UCLA is one of the world's leading universities, according to leading academics from around the world.

The top 10 ranked institutions include Harvard University, MIT-Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University.

Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore remains India's mainstay in the global university rankings.

The scholars were asked to list no more than 15 universities they believe were the best for research and teaching in their respective fields.
