London — Times Higher Education (THE) has announced its World Reputation Rankings 2015 that determines the 100 most renowned higher education institutions in the world.

For the fifth consecutive year, the rankings highlight an elite group of six US and UK “super-brands” that hold a significant lead over the rest. Although the order has changed over the years, the institutions in the top six have remained constant: Harvard University, Cambridge, Oxford, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley.

“What we are finding year on year is that universities in this group of six tend to stand out well above the seventh and eighth placed institutions,” said THE rankings editor Phil Baty. “They seem to be in a super-league all of their own.”

Germany remains the best-represented nation after the US and the UK, with six top 100 universities (the same as last year). Its neighbour France now boasts five institutions in the table (all of them based in Paris), up from two last year.

Asia’s best performer, the University of Tokyo, slipped one place to 12th position. Meanwhile, China’s top institution, Tsinghua University, climbed 10 places to 26th, and Peking University leaped from 41st to 32nd place.

THE partnered with Elsevier to disseminate the Academic Reputation Survey on which the results are based. Questionnaires, which asked participants to nominate up to 10 of the best institutions in their field of expertise, were completed by some 10,000 academics selected to give a statistically representative sample of global scholars.
