Notes:

  • Ordered by the sum of ranks (2017).
  • Last updated November 2018.
  • Graduate only schools, e.g. University of California – San Francisco, are excluded from most rankings and this table.
  • For comparability across rankings the “year” used in these tables refers to the year the ranking was published, not the year that the ranking publisher has assigned. For example the “QS World University Ranking 2019” was published in June 2018 and is therefore listed as “2018”.
