Times Higher Education has released its 2020 global university rankings, with Oxford University grabbing the top spot for the fourth year in a row. California Institute of Technology, the University of Cambridge, Stanford and MIT rounded out the top five.

Japan and China dominate the Asian rankings, accounting for 45% of the continent’s listed institutions.Of the top three Asian universities, two - Tsinghua and Peking - are located in the Chinese capital Beijing, while the third is the National University of Singapore.

Among the top 20 in the overall rankings, ETH Zurich, in joint 13th place, was the only institution outside the US and the UK.

Despite drives to internationalise its higher education system, India failed to crack the top 300.A total of 11 Australian universities made it into the top 200, including newcomers Queensland University of Technology and the University of Canberra.
