Harvard University is number one in the top 100 list of most reputable Universities as it did last year, according to data put together by The Times Higher Education and Thomson Reuters.

The country with the most reputable universities in the world is the US according to the global reputation ranking out today.

But what's interesting are the subtle changes from last year's list.

As the Guardian's Jessica Shepherd observes:

Some of the UK's leading universities have dropped several places since last year, while China's universities have improved their performance. China is expanding its higher education system faster than most other countries in the world.


These trends have not yet changed the overall results of the countries producing the most reputable universities. Taking the top 50 universities from the list we can see that America still has the largest number of higher quality universities, followed by the UK.

According to the Times Higher Education website the list is made by 17,554 leading academics from 149 countries who have rated campuses across the world according to how good they thought their research and teaching were.

With university tuition fees rocketing and more applicants fighting for places, university reputation is set to be an even bigger focus for prospective students.

Here's all the data for you to explore. Let us know what you can do with it.
