Le classement 2012 des 100 meilleures universités

Le classement des meilleures universités par Times Higher Education

Dans le top 100 des universités, on retrouve encre une fois Harvard à la première position. Les universités britanniques ont également progressé depuis l’année dernière et les universités chinoises commencent à apparaitre dans le classement de manière significative.

Le pays avec le plus d’universités représentées sont les Etats-Unis comme souvent. Ce qui change en revanche c’est le nombre croissant d’universités venant de pays émergents et de gros pays tels que l’Inde ou la Chine. La Chine est d’ailleurs le pays qui a le plus progressé dans ce domaine.

Globalement, le classement ne change pas radicalement avec la nette domination des universités américaines avec le Royaume-Uni.

Cette liste a été établie grâce à 17 554 professionnels de l’éducation de 149 pays qui ont noté les campus à travers le monde sur la base de la qualité de leur recherche et de leur enseignement.
