    Where?



    I'd say the only Ivies known outside the US are Harvard and Yale. And maybe Princeton. And yeah none of them are in that QS top 10.
    International reputation here refers to academics filling in surveys. Pretty sure academics generally know now than three US universities.

    You think I don't know that? I wasn't taking about the survey respondents. I was talking about generally.

    And if you are being pedantic, you are missing a "more".

    Amongst lawyers.

    Now try asking some ordinary folks to name American universities.
    Caltech, MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Columbia (ha), UCLA, Berklee (a muso, can you tell), Princeton, Pennsylvania, OCU, OSU lmao

    [ok, I'm half American, maybe I don't qualify as 'ordinary' lmao]

    Given I wanted to go to an Irish uni and didn't qualify for any of their degrees with A*ABB, I'm a bit surprised to see them nowhere near here at all. I'm lithe to say that's just them thinking they're better than they are, but...

    Am a bit happy to see Oxbridge being knocked down a peg, though. Too many people going there just to be disappointed (anecdotal from friends).

    And none of this will make any difference at all to the average undergraduate.

    What a load of meaningless rubbish. Why on earth is TSR even publishing this silliness?

    Ok. So what are the major year-on-year ranking changes? Especially UK, US?

    I have no knowledge if this is paid content - but let's say it is... what keeps this site going? $$$$s from advertising, sponsored content, official reps, etc.

    Without $$$$s there's no TSR.

    There's no paywall or subscriptions (any more).

    It can only survive by monetising its audience. That's how (most of) the interweb works.

    I agree, but if it's gonna make money, surely it should do it honestly? Surely they should do it without obvious clickbait titles that are completely misleading under the guise of an informative honest post. It's poor tactics and it seriously doesn't appeal to their userbase.
    Really, is there any doubt in your mind that this is paid content?

    No doubt Oxford and Cambridge are remarkable institutions, but tradition aside this is the modern age, and many universities now offer just as good quality.
