Cambridge, not Harvard, is world’s top university
The University of Cambridge has attained the number one spot in the 2010 QS World University Rankings, as Harvard University slipped to the second position for the first time in seven years. Oxford is in the top ten.
Cambridge, the first non-US University ever to top the list was voted the best for research quality in a survey of 15,000 academics, the Guardian reports.
Though the top spot went to a UK university, American institutions dominated the list, garnering 31 spots out of the top hundred universities.
