In every sense, there’s no shortage of high-quality education at University College London (UCL), the top-ranked university for education & training again this year. UCL is one of three UK universities in the top 10; Cambridge and Oxford are the others.
Many of the top 20 universities in this year’s ranking were also featured in last year’s top 20, but there is one exception. New Zealand’s University of Auckland has climbed three places to 20th this year, one of seven New Zealand universities included this year.
