Latin America
Featuring nearly 400 universities, the

QS Latin America University Rankings 2018

highlights the best universities in this region.

Chilean university Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC) has risen to the top of this year’s Latin America ranking, up two places on last year’s performance. Last year’s number one university in Latin America, Universidade de São Paulo has slipped to third, while the second-best university Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp) is a non-mover. Brazilian students can take some consolation, however, from the fact their country is the most well-represented in this year’s ranking. 83 Brazilian universities are featured in total.

This year’s rankings were compiled by assessing universities on seven different indicators, including the proportion of academic staff qualified to PhD level and their online presence. More information about the methodology can be found here.
