  • Times Higher Education ranks world universities annually.
  • This year, Harvard was dethroned from the top spot.
  • Oxford University and Cambridge University came in first and second.

For the first time in 14 years, an American college didn’t crack the top two in a ranking of the best universities in the world, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018 list.

United Kingdom-based Oxford and Cambridge Universities came in No.1 and No. 2, respectively.

Times Higher Ed reviews the top 1,000 universities in the world looking at factors of teaching, research, and influence to rank them.

It reviews quantitative factors, like the number of times a university’s published work is cited by scholars globally, and qualitative factors, like peer surveys, to assemble the ranking.

I was going to school  and at the same time returned to her shop of herbs learning different kinds of mixture of herbs and also their names. I have been involved in herbal mixture and I also used it to cure a lot of people who orthodox medicine could not cure even though a lot of people have abused herbal medicine.
