Oxford beats Cambridge in three areas: citations, industry income and international outlook. Cambridge beats Oxford in teaching and research.

I am not sure how you can be better for research, yet get fewer citations. Anglia Ruskin beats both Oxford and Cambridge in citations, as well as Harvard and MIT. A few other random unis beat even the might ARU. I think it's nonsense.

That must be why when you arrive at Cambridge rail station it tells you that this is the home of Anglia Ruskin as opposed to University of Cambridge :cute:

ARU need to advertise! Do you see any Imperial, UCL or LSE adverts on the London Underground?

Is it only me who finds it satisfying that all these American unis are losing their top spots compared to our unis full of history?

I see unis and students use the QS ranking more often but that’s just my personal experience

18 of the UK's 28 universities in the top 200 have declined by one place or more in the new rankings though. Germany may now overtake the UK in terms of representation, so it isn't looking good at all.

Not really serious.

I suspect this is really a function of subject matter. If you are a historian of Bismark's Germany, many other researchers in many fields might quote what you have to say. If you are researching some narrow aspect of topology, your research is of interest to other topologists.
