ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) is the tenth-best university in the world, according to the latest version of the QS World University Rankings®.

It continues ETH Zurich’s proud record of being the best university in Switzerland and continues a three-year run in the top ten.

This good ranking follows the extremely strong performance of ETH Zurich in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017, where it is ranked first in the world for earth & marine sciences and is ranked in the world’s top ten for four more subjects.
