Top 10 Best Universities in the World

The benefits of higher education are numerous. Getting a college degree makes you more employable, gives you a better chance of working a fulfilling profession, and increases your potential income. It can also make you a more well-rounded person, help you see the world from a variety of perspectives, and give you the tools to continue learning and improving yourself for the rest of your life.

Earning a degree from a top tier university further increases the potential of these benefits. Beyond the inherent value of the education they provide, simply having the name of the most highly regarded universities on your diploma can open doors to graduates that are closed to others.

Listed below are the top universities in the world. From the Ivy League to the classic international icons, these are the universities that provide the most highly regarded education and produce the most sought after graduates.

The Top Ten

1 Harvard University

It will never be dethroned in first place till the end of days for this university historically was dedicated to educate the ministers of God even if most of the educators here are atheists now.

Harvard is undoubtedly the best, most famous and respected today. It has been ranked number 1 consistently over the years and its simply the best.

Absolutely brilliant, but actually, I looked and Princeton University (at the moment) is the top-ranked school.

I got into Harvard (Medicine), my brother got into MIT (Engineer) and my sister got into Stanford (Business).

2 MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

the best university in the USA. Ranked the best university in 2010. I got admitted there and my brother got into harvard

Best University for Engineering. Engineering is far better than other subjects like medicine and business.

I am going to this university for computer science, plus simply awesome, but Harvard is better

Umm jagannath univ. laugh out loud it's a good university but its scores aren't as high as other universities in the world, MIT has the best socres in the world.

3 Stanford University

Stanford might not be in the Ivy league but continues to educate some of the brightest minds in modern society. The range of subjects and caliber is amazing.

It's the best university in the world. Not to mention the oldest in the English-speaking world.

Without doubt the best university in the world. Beautiful grounds and a lovely atmosphere.

Oxford University is better than all the other universities in the world bar none.

5 California Institute of Technology

Amazing place! Proud to be a Caltech student.

6 University of Cambridge

I took a summer class at Cambridge called "The Brain and Learning." In one of the early classes we took a test which would tell us what type of learner we were. Since I was a science major, I thought my decisions should be based on evidence and data etc. Surprisingly, my results were that I should make decisions based on how I felt inside. In other words, I should listen to my heart not my brain. So, I started making my life's decisions based on my feelings. Guess, what happened? Yep, my life got better! I was surprised but it actually worked. Thank you Cambridge!

Went there and took a course called, "The brain and learning." I found out what type of a learner I was. This knowledge enabled me to make better decisions in life.

Come on it isn't the most well known University in the world but it is over 800 years old and Stephen Hawking teaches there! GO CAMBRIDGE

Took a course there called, "the brain and learning." It literally changed my life.

7 University of the Visayas The University of the Visayas is an educational institution located at Cebu City, Philippines. It is billed as the first school in the entire province of Cebu who gained a university status.

Best university in the Philippines!

8 Jagannath University

If you want university rankings, go see the website of QS Rankings. This is a waste of time. Jagannath University is a good university but it's nowhere near Harvard or MIT in terms of endowment or research output.

Wow if people knew about this definitely they will switch to jagannath from harvard... But the reality is people who are admitted here they have no option to admit in a better varsity... by the way "Empty vessel sound much"... We all know that carry on at least it will give you some reason to be here...

I love my university... it has a tremendous background... I m happy for being de part of my university... In spite of having lots of drawbacks, it is moving forward and gives us de ray of hope... Good luck Jagannath university..

This is probably the proudest achievement this so called university ever done. Congratulation students, you just make the history of your very dear out-of-nowhere university!
