This year’s Times Higher University Europe Rankings reveal that Italy has the third highest number of featured universities, after consistent top achievers, the UK and Germany. 

The highest-ranking Italian institution is Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, which just makes the top 50 and has around 5% of international students.

Italy has 19 universities featured in the top 200, compared to the UK’s 46 and Germany’s 36 institutions.

At the top end of the table, the UK has dominated once again and the universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London scoop the top three places. 

The rest of the top five is made up by Switzerland’s ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich and the UK’s University College London (UCL).

Sweden performed well with 11 institutions and top university, Karolinska Institute, claiming ninth place. Fellow Scandinavian neighbours Denmark and Finland also did well with six institutions each. 

Elsewhere in Europe, Ireland claimed six universities, with Trinity College Dublin scooping 78th place and Switzerland took nine places.

At the lower end of the table are Russia and Spain, which both only claimed five universities each and performed somewhat disappointingly.

This year there were 22 European countries represented overall in the top 200 list, which draws upon data from 70 countries in the overall THE World University Rankings.
