The Quacquarelli Symonds ranking of the top 300 universities in the world was released Tuesday.
QS, an English educational consulting firm, used a number of requirements to rank the schools, including academic reputation, which accounts for 40 percent of a total score, employer review, the number of foreign students and faculty, and the faculty-to-student ratio.
All of the top ten schools were in English speaking countries, six of which were in the United States. The other four are in the United Kingdom, and the first non-U.S/UK school sits at 17th, which is McGill in Canada, followed by Switzerland's ETH Zurich Institute of Technology.
The University of Hong Kong, which is also an English speaking school, broke the top 25 (in 22nd place). Last on the list was China's Beijing Normal University, which was preceded by the American University of Beirut in Lebanon. The final U.S. school on the list is George Washington University in Washington D.C. (#296).
