Here Is A Top 15 Of The Best Universities In The World

No one wants to go to a bad university! That is why we have decided to present you with a list of the most prestigious universities in the world.


Choosing your future university is not easy for many reasons. Thus, many students look to the rankings to make a slightly more informed choice. Not all the rankings on higher education are good, of course, but the Times Higher Education ranking can be trusted. In fact, this ranking focuses on knowledge, research funding and the school’s reputation. It does not take into account admission requirements, graduation rates, faculty rankings or former student salaries. Without further ado, here are the top 15 schools in the Times Higher Education’s 2019 World University Ranking.
