UC Berkeley and UCLA Ranked Among Top 10 Universities Worldwide



The University of California system once again scored very well in an annual reputational ranking of world research universities by the Times Higher Education magazine of Great Britain, with UC Berkeley and UCLA in the top 10, officials announced Monday.

Harvard topped the list, followed by MIT, the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Princeton, UCLA, the University of Tokyo and Yale in the publication’s “World Reputation Rankings.” The evaluations are based on a survey of more more than 16,000 senior academics.

Other California schools in the top 100: Caltech placed No. 11, UC San Diego 34, UC San Francisco 40, UC Davis 48, UC Santa Barbara in the general grouping between 51 and 60, and USC in the grouping between 61 and 70.

The British magazine also does a more in-depth annual study using objective criteria such as funding and research productivity. In that ranking, Caltech was the highest this year, with Stanford and Oxford tied for second, followed by Harvard and MIT. UC Berkeley was ninth and UCLA 13th in that listing issued in the fall.
