The top ten rankings remained the same as the 2017 edition of the list, with Harvard University and Stanford University in the United States taking the top two spots, respectively, followed by UK’s University of Cambridge. Every year more than 1,200 universities are ranked by ARWU, with the best 500 being published. The league table was launched in 2003. Eight of the top 10 schools worldwide are from the United States.
