Utrecht University Best in the Country

According to the latest list of world ratings, the University of Utrecht is the best in the Netherlands. Globally, the university comes in 39th out of 500 with Leiden University at number 63. The list is drawn up every year by the University of Shanghai. Top of the list is the American Harvard. It is noticeable that American universities occupy 17 of the top 20 places, with only Cambridge (3), Oxford (8) and Tokio (11) breaking the pattern. Utrecht has moved up one place since last year and Leiden 15 places. Groningen University has fallen from 84th position to join the group between 101 and 152 which also includes the University of Amsterdam. However, the criteria for achieving a high rating include the number of Nobel Prize winners and the number of publications.
