The World University Rankings feature universities in 70 countries, with 29 new countries included this year. Countries entering this year include Indonesia, Malaysia, Ghana, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Latvia, Oman, Qatar and the Ukraine.

Phil Baty, the editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings said:

"The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, now in their 12th year, apply rigorous standards, using tough global benchmarks across all of a global research university's key missions--teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The results are trusted by students and their families and by academics, university leaders and governments. The top 800 list represents just 4 per cent of the world's higher education institutions, so we congratulate all institutions who have made this year's list."

Phil Baty continues: "This year's expanded list is testament to just how competitive global higher education has become -- our top 800 universities come from 70 different countries and the traditional dominance of the US is eroding.
