Oxford is back on top for the 16/17 year.

Personally, I've never understood why the list is dominated by English-speaking institutions, and think the whole thing is just a big propaganda exercise. It was quite revealing when earlier this year the American universities refused to be involved in a university version of the PISA studies. 5 universities in the top 30 from non English-speaking countries? Really? (and four of them are in positions 28, 29 and 30) Is the rest of the world's higher education really that far behind (mainly) the US and UK? And if so, why are the UK and USA not massively ahead of everyone else in terms of skills?
