UC Berkeley won recognition as one of the “elite six” world universities in the newly released 2016 reputation rankings by the Times Higher Education.
The reputation rankings, based on a survey of more than 10,000 academics worldwide, are just six years old, and this is the sixth time Berkeley has placed in the “elite six,” along with Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Cambridge and Oxford. All six scored far higher than the other universities by Times Higher Education, the United Kingdom’s leading educational news publication. The reputation rankings are separate from THE‘s annual World University Rankings, which come out in the fall.
Berkeley ranked sixth with a score of 62.7 overall, far ahead of the next ranked university, Princeton, which scored 38.1.
