The university rankings across the countries and the world are listed by considering many things. Of course, it is the powerful faculty, the intelligence of the students and the scholarly excellence that come first to estimate the rankings. Next the campus, the ambiance, the facilities that the universities offer the students and the involvement of the institutions in creating the new scientists, engineers, teachers and doctors of the future are judged to incorporate the names of the Universities among the toppers.
Though, it is a very complicated and challenging process to select the top 10 best universities in the world because how an American University can be the best among the universities in China and vice-versa! On the contrary, it is pretty tough to organize a tough fight among the Ivy League institutes with that of the century-old educational institutes of the European countries, especially UK -The Great Britain. Even the University of California is counted by many among the top 10, but it is not an Ivy League. Then how can anyone judge that the great state university is anyhow inferior to the Ivy Leagues?
Here is the list of the top 10 best universities in the World after counting and judging the numbers of the faculty members who are Nobel Laureates. Winners of Philosophical Society, Winners of the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, members of the National Academy of Science, MacArthur Fellows and the much prestigious Pulitzer Prize winners of the great universities.
