The Times Higher Education today publishes the 2016 list of the 200 most international universities in the world. For the first time, Qatar University tops the list.

Qatar University knocks five-time leader Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland down to fourth place. The rest of the top 10 is filled by the University of Luxembourg (second), University of Hong Kong (third), University of Geneva (fifth), University of Macau (sixth), ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (seventh), University of St Gallen (eighth) and National University of Singapore (ninth) and Imperial College London (tenth). Overall 28 countries are represented in the top 200 list.

Phil Baty, Times Higher Education World University Rankings editor says:“An institution’s global outlook is one of the key markers of a prestigious university. The top institutions hire faculty from all over the world, attract students from a global market of top talent and collaborate with leading departments wherever they happen to be based. “All institutions in this list deserve to celebrate – being named one of the most international universities in the world is a sign of great potential, competitiveness and dynamism.”
