WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2021 — U.S. News & World Report, one of the global authorities in education rankings, today published the 2022 edition of the Best Global Universities. The new edition evaluates more than 1,700 schools giving overall scores on academic research and reputation.

The U.S. leads the overall ranking, with schools in the top four spots. No. 1 is Harvard University, followed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, and the University of California Berkeley at No. 2, 3, and 4. Rounding out the top five is the University of Oxford in the U.K.

The 2022 edition includes universities from more than 90 countries. The most ranked schools are in the following countries:

U.S.: 271
China: 253
Japan: 93
U.K.: 89
Germany: 70

“These rankings stand out from our other education rankings due to their emphasis on academic research,” said Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News. “The Best Global Universities feature an overall ranking of more than 1,700 universities, as well as subject rankings of additional 255 universities, for a total of 2,005 schools, providing even more information for prospective students interested in schools where research is a top priority.”

Five new subjects were added to the rankings, bringing the total to 43. The new subjects are physical chemistry, food science and technology, optics, condensed matter physics, and polymer science.

Based on Web of Science™ data and InCites™ metrics provided by Clarivate, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, the Best Global Universities methodology weighs factors that measure a university’s global and regional research reputation and academic research performance. The overall rankings include bibliometric indicators such as publications, citations, and international collaboration. In addition, each subject ranking has its methodology based on academic research performance in that specific area.

“As students, faculty, and staff continue to navigate the pandemic, comparable school-specific data remains important to individuals exploring their higher education options,” said Kim Castro, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News. “For eight years and counting, the Best Global Universities rankings have provided easily accessible data that prospective students can use to evaluate those options.”
