It’s the second year the UK institution has been named number one, with close rivals the University of Cambridge rising two places this year to be ranked second.

The rest of the top 10 in the THE World University Content 2018 is dominated by American universities, with seven featuring in total. Of these, only two have improved upon their performance since last year, with the University of Chicago rising one place to ninth and the University of Pennsylvania squeezing into the top 10, up three places since last year.

The release of the Times Higher Education World University Content follows on the heels of the QS World University Content 2018 and the latest edition of the ‘Shanghai’ ranking which were published earlier this year. Collectively, these three world university rankings are seen as the most prestigious global comparison of universities.

Louise Richardson, Oxford’s vice-chancellor, told she was “delighted that Oxford has held its position at the top of these global rankings.”

Elsewhere in the world, the top university in Asia according to THE’s ranking is the National University of Singapore, ranked joint 22nd in the world.
