Times Higher Education’s list of the world’s top universities for 2011-2012

After the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) for 2011 was published earlier this year, Times Higher Education has announced its list of top universities for 2011-2012. Unlike the ARWU ranking conducted by the Center for World-Class Universities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Times Higher Education ranking has not included any of the Western Balkans universities in the Top 400.

Let us remind that the only university from the Western Balkan region to by in the Shanghai’s Top 500 this year was the University of Zagreb (Croatia), ranked 401-500. For Zagreb Universality this was the first time since Shanghai rankings were first out to be included in the list.

In order to visualize the rankings, Times Higher Education has made the video below on the occasion of announcing the World University Rankings 2011-2012.
