ETH Zurich (23rd) in Switzerland takes first place in Continent Europe, followed by Paris-Sud (37th) and Pierre and Marie Curie (42nd) in France.

 

Israel and Australia have increased the number of Top 100 universities this year. With Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (78th) and Weizmann Institute of Science (93rd) entering the Top 100 for the very first time, three Israeli universities are listed among Top 100. The University of Western Australia’s first appearance in Top 100 (96th) increases the number of Top 100 universities in Australia to 5, which is the 3rd highest number across all countries.

 

Five universities in China and four in other countries move into the Top 500 for the first time. As a result, China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan) now has 42 universities in the Top 500, overtaking the UK which has 38 universities in the Top 500 - second in the world.
