Cambridge and Oxford universities slip in world rankings
The UK has 10 universities in the top 100 of the world's best when it comes to global reputation, but many have slipped down the rankings this year.
Cambridge and Oxford remain in the top five, at fourth and fifth place respectively, but both have moved down two places on their 2015 ranking.
The US dominates the Times Higher Education (THE) reputation rankings, with Harvard and MIT in top places.
Asia has 17 universities in the top 100 - up from 10 in last year's rankings.
The highest rated Asian universities are the University of Tokyo in Japan in 12th place and China's Tsinghua University in 18th place and Peking University in 21st place and the National University of Singapore in 26th place.
These are rankings based on reputation and perceived status, based on the opinions of an international panel of academics.
These are separate from the university rankings based on research and teaching quality.
