This should be an interesting exercise for those that love University Rankings.

QS will release the 2021 World University Rankings and I'd like those that have fairy dust to guess the top ten. When they come out next week, we can then compare and see who got close! We all know the world will come to an end if we don't get these rankings correct - so get guessing.

For reference I've provided the top 20 from 2020.

Rankings from last year:

1 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) United States
2 Stanford University United States
3 Harvard University United States
4 University of Oxford United Kingdom
5 California Institute of Technology (Caltech) United States
6 ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Switzerland
7 University of Cambridge United Kingdom
8 UCL United Kingdom
9 Imperial College London United Kingdom
10 University of Chicago United States
=11 Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
=11 National University of Singapore
13 Princeton University United States
14 Cornell University United States
15 University of Pennsylvania United States

16 Tsinghua University China (Mainland)
17 Yale University United States
=18 Columbia University United States
=18 EPFL Switzerland
20 The University of Edinburgh United Kingdom

I absolutely adore them, in fact I go on vacation to the number 1 ranked University city every year 😁. Let's get guessing, this should be fun.

Changed my mind.... I think it'll be something like this instead:

1 Harvard University
2 Stanford University
3 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
4 University of Oxford
5 University of Cambridge
6 Imperial College London
7 ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
8 Columbia University
9 University College London
10 Tsinghua University
