Oxford the second greatest university in the country

We also came 5th in the whole world

Oxford has been ranked as the second greatest uni in the country based on its reputation.

The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings placed Oxford just behind Cambridge out of 10 British universities that made the cut.

We also ranked 5th in the world, slipping 2 places since last year.

THE editor Phil Baty said: “Reputation is the global currency of higher education. It may be subjective, it may not always be fair, but it matters deeply.”

The UK had 10 universities overall in the top 100, as Bristol and Durham slipped out this year. We came second only to the US.
