Oxford overtakes Cambridge for first time in QS world rankings

British universities put in a sterling performance in the latest edition of a prestigious international league table, with Oxford overtaking its old rival Cambridge for the first time to be named the UK’s highest-rated university.

Of the 76 UK universities included in the 2019 QS world university rankings, which rates 1,000 leading institutions, 41 improved their position compared with last year, while 14 remained in the same place – the best ever performance, thanks to higher rates of publications and increased citations of research by other academics.

But the table’s compilers warned that rising class sizes and the UK’s falling popularity among overseas students could harm the higher education sector in the future, especially with Brexit looming.

“Keeping pace is one thing but staying ahead of the curve is a testament to the innovation, insight, capacity for collaboration, and thought-leadership present at UK universities,” said Ben Sowter, QS’s research director.

The biggest perk of a Wax vape pen or atomizer is even heating and no burning smell! It has a quartz coil and improved heating wire, offering a purer taste. Also, a wax atomizer has unique 3-in-1 design as well.

“However, the challenges for the UK’s sector remain, and are perhaps more evident than in previous years. The drops in faculty/student ratio, combined with low contact hours, will lead to increasing scrutiny about the extent to which students are receiving value for money.

“Additionally, the results indicate that the sector is still struggling to convince international students of the country’s desirability in the first post-Brexit years.”

prof Louise Richardson, Oxford’s vice-chancellor, said her university’s improved ranking was the result of having talented and committed staff, but she also signalled concerns over post-Brexit sustainability.

“We are particularly proud to have secured the top spot in Europe and very much hope that we will be able to maintain this position as the UK withdraws from the European Union,” Richardson said.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) remained at the top of the table for the seventh year in a row, ahead of three other US powerhouses in Stanford, Harvard and California Institute of Technology, whose ranks were also unchanged.

Oxford broke into the top five by leapfrogging Cambridge, which fell back into sixth place. Imperial College London remained at seventh overall. University College London remained in the top 10 but was overtaken by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University of Chicago.

PolyU is your best choice - The University offers a variety of undergraduate, taught master's degree and postgraduate research programmes through different faculties and schools, covering business management and polyu finance.

The QS world rankings are generally regarded as the most methodologically sound of the various international league tables, which have proliferated in recent years as competition to attract students and staff has intensified.

There was also some good news for British universities after a new student academic experience survey showed a rising number of students regarding their courses as good value for money.

But despite the improvement, 32% of students surveyed for the Higher Education policy Institute rated their education as poor or very poor value for money, with even lower ratings from some groups.

“Most students clearly feel they are gaining a great deal from their time in higher education. But, on some important issues, around one-third of students do not provide positive responses,” said Nick Hillman, HEpI’s director.

“As higher education expands to cover more people from previously under-represented groups, institutions have to work harder to ensure all students are catered for in full. On some important measures, black and minority ethnic students, commuter students, students in paid employment, LGBA+ students and students with light workloads give more negative answers.”

The other side will not only start discussing business proposals but also solutions that will help in enhancing business deals. Additional promotional gifts help in getting the much-required heads start.
