Top 200 World’s Most International Universities 2016

The World’s Most International Universities 2016

Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings (WUR) data reveal the top 200 most outward-looking institutions. The best universities in the world are truly global institutions – ones that attract students and scholars from all over the world and collaborate with leading departments no matter where they are based.

All of the universities that feature in the THE World University Rankings (WUR) place internationalisation high on their agenda. But which ones are the most international? Qatar University tops the list, which is based on the results of the “international outlook” indicator in the THE World University Rankings 2015-2016, while the UK is the nation that does the best on this measure overall.

The international outlook indicator considers each institution’s proportion of international staff, proportion of international students and proportion of research papers published with at least one co-author from another country. All the institutions that feature in the top 800 of the overall 2015-2016 ranking have been considered.

How you choose your university would depend on what is important to you. Do you prefer universities that are ranked according to quality of their core missions (i.e teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook)? If yes, look up the Top 200 World’s Best Global Universities 2016. Or you're more concerned with schools ranked according to the level of their 'international outlook'? In that case, the list below is the way to go. Our candid advise is that you scrutinize both rankings to create a balance in your final choice(s).

Below is a list of the 200 most international universities in the world.
